M+B is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Warith Taha, the artist’s first solo show with the gallery. The exhibition runs from October 23 through December 4, 2021, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 23 from 6 to 8 pm. Press Release coming soon.
Warith Taha works primarily through the medium of painting, he creates work that addresses his Black queer relationship to time, space, and material. Warith’s practice draws from a diverse field of research ranging from abstraction to 90’s Black Inches Magazines, family photos to found domestic objects, self-portraiture to autobiography. These points of interest become anchors in his ongoing exploration of Black queer bodily visibility and absence. Central to Warith's work is an imagining into how painting can be used as a tool of resistance against historical erasure and inaccuracy.
Warith Taha (b., Oakland, CA) received his M.F.A in Painting from Tyler School of Art and Architecture in Philadelphia, PA and a B.S. in Sociology from Boston College. He has held solo exhibitions at Temple Contemporary Gallery (Philadelphia, PA) and has an upcoming exhibit at M+B (Los Angeles). Warith’s work has been exhibited in group shows at Flxst Contemporary (Chicago, IL), Cherry Street Pier (Philadelphia, PA), and Hiestand Gallery (Oxford, OH). Warith is the 2020 awardee of Headland Center for the Art’s Tournesol Award and the 2021/2022 NXTHVN Fellowship Award. His work has been written about in New City Art and New American Paintings. Warith Taha lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
