There's a secret black language on display at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, put there by the New York artist Steffani Jemison. Hieroglyphs painted in black acrylic on transparent sheets of polyester film are hung on the white walls like long calligraphic scrolls. The scrolls don't stop at the floor but continue to flow along it resting on low, white pedestals that extend outward. The pedestals are subtle but important. They make it so the viewer only ever sees the black language against a white background. Read more of Jen Graves' review here.
