Starting 24 June, Womxn in Windows, a platform whose mission is to share the perspectives of women of color through video art, film, and performance, will present ‘American Gurl’ an ongoing curatorial project featuring work that explores all shades of American Dreaming. Co-curated by Zehra Zehra and Kilo Kish, ‘American Gurl’ continues themes from Kish’s musical work sharing the same title. This installment of the project will take shape as a film exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Downtown Los Angeles that will present eight films by intergenerational artists with curiosity around the perspectives and nuances within the Black feminine experience and our relationships to beauty, success, freedom and power in America.

Participating artists:
Ayanna Dozier
Ja’Tovia Gary
Kilo Kish
Savanah Leaf
LaJuné McMillian
in collaboration with Marguerite Hemmings
Lorna Simpson
Martine Syms
Carrie Mae Weems

The exhibition will kick off with an opening party on Saturday, 24 June from 6 – 9 pm. Join us in the courtyard for a party featuring a performance by Marawa and DJ sets by KittyCa$h and quinn blake. Click here to RSVP.
