Known for her cartoon-like characters engaged in ambiguous activities, Laylah Ali’s paintings imply narratives that address a wide variety of political and societal concerns. Her carefully-created images deceive us with their buoyant color, yet at the same time delve into some of the more disturbing impulses revealed in the workings of individuals and groups.  For her exhibition at the Contemporary, Ali will present an intimate series of drawings and paintings on paper. Two special viewing rooms will be created to display the paintings in one and a series of rarely shown intimate drawings in the other.
