Harlem’s Claire Oliver Gallery reopens with the first New York solo show for Adebumni Gabadebo, featuring her series “True Blue,” named after two former South Carolina slave plantations. One, where Gabadebo’s ancestors were once held in bondage, has fallen into neglect, while the other is now a golf course. Made on cotton and rice paper with indigo—materials historically produced by slave labor—the over 45 mixed media works in the series serve as a reminder of the forgotten legacy of slavery in both places.
