London. Jennifer Packer at the Serpentine Gallery

March 31, 2021

Friends and flowers  

Flowers with human fragility and tender portraits of friends are among the 34 works by the struggling artist currently at the Serpentine with her first European exhibition, “The eye is not satisfied with seeing”, a political theme. The subjects have a very precise identity for Jennifer Packer who expresses her affection this way, in an effort to contribute a black narrative to the history of art. Anguish over the institutional abuse against black Americans poured into the still lives is a condemnation of suspect circumstances like the death of Sandra Bland while in police custody in 2015. Paintings and drawings in order to understand an artist profoundly committed to contemporaneity. Curated by Melissa Blanchflower. For information on opening dates contact the museum.
