Steve Turner is pleased to present Company, a solo exhibition by New York-based Brittany Tucker that consists of paintings combining the artist’s likeness with that of a cartoonish image of a generic white man. Tucker misrepresents the white figure in order to address the uneasy relationship between American blackness and whiteness and to offset the stereotype characters from minstrelsy. By rendering herself realistically, she makes herself the primary subject while the white man is the joke of the painting.

Brittany Tucker (b. 1996, Brooklyn) received a BA at Bard College (2018). She had a solo exhibition at Spring Break, New York (2019, presented by Four-D Projects) and currently has work included in a group exhibition at Kravets Wehby, New York (2019). This is Tucker’s first exhibition at Steve Turner, Los Angeles.
