The Banner Project: Lauren Halsey

Presented by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Boston MA

The Banner Project: Lauren Halsey

See a series of banners that function as blueprints to imagine new futures, both local and global, that celebrate and protect Black life.

Lauren Halsey’s work traverses time and cultures, but it always remains firmly rooted in her immediate community of South Central Los Angeles, where her family has lived for over a century. For her “Banner Project,” Halsey remixes signs, symbols, and Afrofuturist visions inspired by the visual vernacular of her neighborhood, including posters, advertising, and tags. She juxtaposes them with works from the ancient cultures of Egypt and Nubia that she selected from the MFA’s collection.
