at Looiersgracht 60

Steffani Jemison (USA, 1981) is an interdisciplinary artist whose work considers issues that arise when conceptual practices are inflected by black history and vernacular culture. Jemison uses rigorous formal methods to explore her interests in the politics of serial form, the limits of narrative description, and the tension between improvisation, repetition, and fugitivity. One body of mixed media works employs acetate as print medium, glazing, or support; another uses transcription of found and staged conversations as a generative process. Steffani also organizes social and archival projects; the most recent of these is her collaboration with Jamal Cyrus, Alpha’s Bet Is Not Over Yet, an exhibition, reading room, and discussion space inspired by the politics of early 20th century African American periodicals.
