About the Event

The Know Contemporary Presents...

Onto Something: A Solo Exhibition by YoYo Lander

Opening Reception September 11th 7-9pm in Los Angeles, CA

YoYo Lander’s arresting collages celebrate the beauty, strength, and vulnerability of Black people. Layering snippets of dyed watercolor paper on top of canvas, paper, or wood panels, the artist depicts her nude, brown-skinned figures in repose against white backgrounds. Lander works from photographs and carefully renders her subjects’ body language to provide additional context. The artist studied communications at Howard University before completing her MFA at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since then, she has exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and Stockholm. Prioritizing joy over struggle, Lander provides a refreshing alternative to dominant negative narratives around Blackness.
