About the Exhibition
Jocelyn Taylor creates a candid and thought-provoking video installation entitled The Story of Color. Taylor's videos, installed in two New York City storefront windows, set up a point of contemplation for the interplay of race, sexuality, and humanity within the context of New York's vast and diverse population. At the Sigerson Morrison shoe boutique on Mott Street, and at the Williamsburg Mini-Mall, passersby encounter five loosely constructed narratives. In them, Taylor explores perceptions of five words—white, black, light, dark and color—and the varied meanings of these terms within our collective psyches. Using three monitors set up side by side, Taylor's video triptych depicts mythologies commonly associated with colors and hues.
