Pamela Council: Bury Me Loose

When: September 10–October 23
Where: Denny Dimin Gallery (39 Lispenard Street, Tribeca, Manhattan)

Pamela Council brings together Black vernacular camp, pop culture, horror, and humor in their visceral, ongoing exploration of “Blaxidermy,” a fusion of the words “taxidermy” and “blaxploitation.” Among the works on view are a scale model of a racetrack built from fake nails modeled on the manicure of Olympic track star Florence Griffith-Joyner, and a video of a recent “Juneteenth fountain” from the artist’s Fountains for Black Joy series, accented with palm trees and filled with 800 gallons of red soda. The show will overlap with Council’s public art installation “A Fountain for Survivors,” which opens in Times Square in October.
