March 3 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Johansson Projects presents Earth Black Lipstick, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Barbados-based artist Sheena Rose. The exhibition runs from February 25 – April 1, 2023 with an artist reception and talk with Autumn Breon on Friday, March 3, 5- 8pm.

Sheena Rose (b. 1985, Bridgetown, Barbados) has exhibited in the United States at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina; Eric Firestone, NY, De Buck Gallery, NY; Connect Gallery, Chicago, David Zwirner’s online Platform and Johansson Projects in Oakland, and across the globe including the Havana Biennial, Cuba; ICF, Royal Academy of Arts, London, England; Berlin Biennale, Berlin, Germany; and the University of the West Indies, Barbados. Her work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, ArtNews, Travel & Leisure Magazine, Vogue, Hospitality Design, White Wall, Wetranfer, Black Futures, Fox Television Empire Season 6. Her art appeared on the cover of “The Star Side of Bird Hill” written by Naomi Jackson.

Autumn Breon’s examination of contemporary art throughout the African Diaspora began when she was living and working in South Africa. Through inquiry-based interaction, she invites audiences to participate in the examination of freedom, intersectional identities, and Diasporic memory. Using a variety of media – including installation, performance, and collage – her qualitative and quantitative research processes provide the foundation for reimagining and creating systems that make current oppressive systems obsolete. Breon’s work has been recognized by Artsy, the Smithsonian Institution, Aspen Institute, TED, the Obama Foundation, Artnet, Time Magazine, and the New York Times.
