Brittany Tucker’s solo exhibition Company is opening for display at Steve Turner Los Angeles on July 20th. Featuring a cartoon character alongside realistic self-portraits, Tucker brings forward a new way to represent the differences between being Black and white in the US. By portraying a realistic version of herself positioned next to a caricature of a white man, she subverts historic racial caricature and highlights the unrealistic nature of white expectations.
