Khadijah Morley & eva birhanu Intricacies of the Gaze

As an invitation to introspection, Intricacies of the Gaze explores and preserves two perspectives of Black womanhood. Together, Khadijah Morley and eva birhanu use their practices to expand on their diasporic experiences to engage with the multiplicity of Blackness through a transfusion of textiles and print media. Here the two artists present work that contends with the duality of their self-perception: how the world views them and how they view themselves.

As viewers move from one artist to the next, they will note how both Morley and birhanu narrate the elements of their identity that are both constructed and critiqued by the gazes of the world around them. It visually speaks to the act of watching while being watched. Through iconography and illustrative narratives of racial identity, Intricacies of the Gaze utilizes the synergy of Morley and birhanu to construct a space that allows for conversation on Black womanhood and acts as an extension to ideologies well known to Black and Black biracial women.
