“Swerve Team Meeting” – Kim Dacres

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce Swerve Team Meeting, an exhibition of nine sculptures by Fellowship Artist Kim Dacres. This is Dacres’ first solo exhibition in New York City. Swerve Team Meeting draws on hairstyles, features, and identities of black women. Through working with rubber tires and tubes, Dacres transforms exterior materials to represent personal identities. The sculptures were created over the course of a two year period during which Dacres collected, cleaned, and braided recycled bicycle parts from Harlem and the Bronx. She used these tough yet flexible and forgiving materials to emphasize the characteristics of black women inside and outside of her community.
