Tschabalala Self’s work examines the complexities of the black body at the intersections of race and gender in paintings that combine collage with the use of textiles, paint, and printmaking. Self has recently expanded her practice to include immersive installations in works that explore the environment of the small convenience stores commonly known as bodegas in Spanish-speaking communities in New York. These installations abound with references that celebrate their social, cultural, and aesthetic significance to the primarily Black and Latinx communities they serve.
