The Laundromat is pleased to announce If the Walls Could Talk, a solo exhibition featuring sculpture, animations, and drawings by Ianthe Jackson to take place Saturday, October 24th.

Time: by appointment from noon, reception 6-10pm

If the Walls Could Talk features a model rendered from memory of the neighborhood where Jackson grew up in Buffalo, New York. The installation combines sculpture and drawing to model the houses, lawns, streets and inhabitants of Jackson’s childhood home. As well as rebuilding the neighborhood in miniature, Jackson recounts stories of some of her neighbors in a series of animated vignettes.

In addition, Jackson will exhibit floor maps of each of the approximately 20 residences she has occupied during her life. Each map details the floor plan, furniture, and personal objects of her former residences. The exhibition chronicles her life’s events through recollections of the spaces she has called home.

If the Walls Could Talk is presented in conjunction with other neighborhood galleries as part of This Beat is Sick, a night celebrating the thriving Bushwick art scene with galleries remaining open late.

The Laundromat is an artist-curated exhibition space.
