Anina Major: Inheritance

5247 W Adams Blvd
Sep 17, 2 PM - 5 PM — ends Oct 22, 2022
Shoshana Wayne Gallery is pleased to present ‘Inheritance’ by Anina Major. This is the artist’s first solo show with the gallery. ‘Inheritance’ will be on view from September 17th through October 22nd, 2022, with an opening reception on September 17th from 2-5 pm.

The decision to voluntarily establish a home contrary to the location in which Major was born and raised (The Bahamas) motivates her to investigate the relationship between self and place. In search of a place to articulate the essence of her practice, the artist returns to the inspirational source of her work—the straw market, an actual place that possesses metaphorical meanings, to further explore her own migration and the emotional complexities of transactional relationships between people and places. At its juncture a sense of belonging is generated from a combination of characteristics, core values and deep-rooted histories that are often undervalued in the context of tourism.
