The artist, Tschabalala Self, constructs exaggerated depictions of female bodies using a combination of sewn, printed, and painted materials, traversing different artistic and craft traditions. In her piece "Bodega Run", we see what appears to be an African American woman going on a "run" to a typical Harlem bodega. In her head, near her brain, a cut-out of words saying "Open 24-Hours" is placed. This could have a double meaning, in my opinion. Self is known for masking her own experiences and cultural attitudes toward race and gender in her artwork, and this creation is no different.
