A Window In: Abigail DeVille


Abigail DeVille Listens to History captures DeVille’s thought process as she constructs her installation and performance pieces. Her work is often times complex and messy, reflecting the history of her subjects – Black Americans. However, despite the intense nature of her work, DeVille also captures the resilience and joy of Black people. That spirit can be witnessed during her “guerrilla performances” such as the “The New Migration” in Harlem, New York. 

A New York native, DeVille lives and works in the Bronx, New York. She earned a B.F.A. from the Fashion Institute of Technology and an M.F.A. from Yale University. 

South Dallas Cultural Center presents A Window In: A look at Contemporary Art of the African Diaspora. Each week, SDCC will feature a curated list of videos from ART 21: Art in the Twenty First Century that highlight artists of the African Diaspora. From topics of Power and Truth to Love and Loss, these artists explore and expand the bounds of what art is and could be.
