TERN Gallery is pleased to present Colonial Swag, a solo exhibition of paintings, tapestries and mixed media by artist April Bey. Raised in Nassau on the island of New Providence in The Bahamas and currently residing in Los Angeles, Bey’s interdisciplinary work combines American and Bahamian visual culture and contemporary pop culture into potent and imaginative social critique.
Her work incorporates elements of feminism, generational theory, Afrofuturism, Afro-surrealism and constructs of race within supremacist systems. TERN’s first solo exhibition of Bey’s trenchant work, Colonial Swag, will be on view from April 21 to May 28,2022, with an opening reception on April 21st, 2022, at 7p.m.
Bey’s artworks are often crafted around the perspective of the fictional planet Atlantica,
