Press release

Esteban Jefferson – Petit Palais

Tanya Leighton is delighted to announce the representation of Esteban Jefferson on the occasion of his first solo exhibition in Europe. Petit Palais is a continuation of the artist’s recent show at White Columns in New York, which probes the European sensitivity towards the systemic racism ingrained in museum culture.

Like its first iteration, the exhibition comprises three main elements: a group of large-scale paintings, a two-channel video, and a faux-marble floor, reconsidering the Beaux Art-style rotunda of the Petit Palais Museum in Paris and its overlooked statuary.
