Ellen Gallagher

Photo: Ellen Gallagher

Ellen Gallagher’s work explores issues of race, identity and transformation, referencing historical and contemporary subjects that include modernist abstraction, marine biology and popular Black culture. She makes repeated references to traditions of blackface and minstrelsy, as well as performers and musicians such as Sun Ra. Historically specific cultural references are merged with Gallagher’s own personal biography.
