Kandis Williams: A Line

52 Walker / New York / Art

The inaugural show at David Zwirner’s fourth gallery in New York City, which opened this fall in Tribeca, presents Kandis Williams’s sculptures, videos, and collages. Through this range of mediums Williams explores the intersection of dance and race. “Dance is so reflective of social scripts and social impulses that we don’t feel we have to name,” she recently told The New York Times, “but [they] become wrapped in characters and fictions.” The works on view—from graphic collages of dancers to plant sculptures that feature leaves subtly printed with images of the human body—attempt to correct these fictions. Exhibition highlights include ink collages that foreground Black dancers, as well as a video of a dancer performing Williams’s choreography. The video plays on six old-fashioned monitors at once. —J.D.
