Known for her chromatically vibrant paintings and her sculptural installations built from clothing and textiles—the influence of her mother, a former fashion designer—the acclaimed artist Shinique Smith also channels her creative vision through the medium of performance. Recently, she staged a two-person performative duet titled Gesture II: Between Two Breaths at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s “Next Wave Festival.”

Here, watch a video of this lyrical performance, which the artist—whose work has been featured in shows at the Studio Museum in Harlem, MoMA PS1, and internationally—developed as a part of her survey at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts earlier this year.
