“Swiss Institute is delighted to present a book launch and installation by Tschabalala Self to celebrate the culmination of the artist’s long-term project, Bodega Run. Initiated in 2017, Self’s Bodega Run explores these small, largely family-run corner stores as a central institution in the collective imagination and everyday realities of multiple communities of color in New York City. For three days in January 2024, SI will host a special installation of Self’s Bodega Run, including new paintings, sculptures, and wall-mounted reliefs, accompanied by a neon sign installation in the window, temporarily turning the building into a bodega imagined by the artist. The publication features newly commissioned texts by some of today’s leading writers alongside Self’s vibrant visuals examining bodega culture from racial, gendered, and diasporic perspectives.”

A limited number of advance copies of Bodega Run will be available for sale at the exhibition
