Self examines the complexities of the New York City bodega through her vibrant paintings, sculptures and installations alongside newly commissioned essays

Working across a range of mediums, including large-scale painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage and installation, Tschabalala Self’s (born 1990) exuberant and visually seductive artworks often focus on stories of urban life, the body and humanity to explore cultural attitudes toward race and gender.
Taking its title from the celebrated series of installations which culminated in a 2019 exhibition at Los Angeles’ Hammer Museum, Bodega Run documents Self’s multiyear-long exploration of the bodega—corner-store fixtures of New York City neighborhoods—as both a gathering place for community and a microcosm of the shifting political and economic forces that impact the lives of city dwellers, particularly of Black and Latin descent.
In vibrant paintings, sculptures and dizzying immersive installations, Self captures the densely stocked shelves, neon signs and intermingling characters of the New York City bodega. This lavishly designed monograph reproduces works and photographs from throughout the Bodega Run series, alongside significant new texts that expand on the project and Self’s practice and a sewn-in zine insert with photographs of New York bodegas. Tschabalala Self: Bodega Run is an essential look at a defining series of artworks by one of the most exciting young artists working today.
