Womxn in Windows and Hauser & Wirth LA Present 'American Gurl'

Featuring eight films that explore the perspectives and nuances of the Black feminine experience.

Womxn in Windows is a platform with the mission to spread the ideas of underrepresented womxn (cis, trans and non-binary inclusive) through moving image. The organization was founded in 2019 by curator Zehra Ahmed as a way to showcase womxn-made art films in window storefronts, but has since developed into a larger platform that has fielded performances and installations across the U.S., including Times Square.

This Saturday, June 24, at Hauser & Wirth in Los Angeles, the organization will showcase American Gurl — an ongoing curatorial project featuring work that explores all shades of American Dreaming. Co-curated by Ahmed and American signer Kilo Kish, the exhibition will explore themes related to Kish’s musical of the same name, while spotlighting the nuances of the Black feminine experience in relation to notions of “beauty, success, freedom and power in America,” wrote a release by Womxn in Windows.

Eight films by intergenerational artists will be on view, including a piece by Kish, alongside works by Ayanna Dozier, Ja’Tovia Gary, Savanah Leaf, Lorna Simpson, Martine Syms, Carrie Mae Weems and LaJuné McMillian in collaboration with Marguerite Hemmings.

Opening night will run from 6 to 9pm PT at the gallery’s courtyard in DTLA, including a performance by Marawa and DJ sets by KittyCa$h and Quinn Blake. For those looking to attend on Saturday, please RSVP at Hauser & Wirth, while the exhibition itself will be on view until July 30.

In case you missed it, we spoke to Bijan Berahimi about reconnecting to his Iranian cultural heritage for Hypebeast Magazine Issue 31.
