Kunsthalle Basel and its director Elena Filipovic present Deana Lawson’s exhibition Centropy.

Meticulously staged yet profoundly intimate images of the sartorial styles, quotidian habits, and domestic interiors of the African diaspora in her native United States, Brazil, and beyond, Deana Lawson’s (* 1979) photographs are unforgettable portraits of contemporary Black life.

Due to the measures in place to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, Kunsthalle Basel is refraining from a public opening event and instead offers one week of free admission to Lawson’s new exhibition, in which you can also catch the prolonged group exhibition by Nick Mauss.

Tuesday, June 9 to Sunday, June 14, 2020
Free admission

Sunday, June 14, 2020, 3 pm

The exhibition is generously supported by François Gutzwiller, the Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte, and the Gwaertler Foundation, with additional support from the Volkart Foundation and the Ruth & Arthur Scherbath Stiftung. Co-produced with the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo.
