SN37 Gallery: Shaniqwa Jarvis
Please note this event has now ended.
Dreams. Memories. Fantasies. Imaginations. This is the world of Sleep to Dream by Shaniqwa Jarvis, SN37 Gallery’s fifth show at the Seaport. Showcasing photographs and one print on silk, the exhibition explores the hazy space where photography and dreamscape meet. Here, Jarvis invites her subconscious into her practice, producing images that are more abstract compared to her more traditional portraiture work. Photographs of a snowy road, an explosive splash in green waters, and the reaching limbs of an evergreen are shown with a black and white image of a person staring out at a foggy shore. Jarvis’s work will be presented against black gallery walls so that the images emerge from darkness as equally as they emerge from light.
SN37 donates proceeds of each exhibition to an organization of the artists’ choosing; the proceeds from the sale of works from Jarvis’s show will be donated to the Harlem School of the Arts.
