Organized by Christovale in Los Angeles, “Hammer Projects: Ja’Tovia Gary” opened at the museum on February 2, 2020. The exhibition marks the U.S. premiere of THE GIVERNY SUITE—an immersive, three-channel extension of Gary’s single channel film. Shot on location in Harlem, New York, and in Claude Monet’s historic gardens in Giverny, France, the installation is a multi-textured cinematic poem that meditates on the safety and bodily autonomy of Black women. Opened two weeks later, Gary’s inaugural exhibition at Paula Cooper Gallery, titled “flesh that needs to be loved,” includes the East Coast premiere of THE GIVERNY SUITE, as well as the artist’s first-ever multimedia sculptural installation.
