In Steffani Jemison: Revelation, the Brooklyn-based artist continues her exploration of language and power. Selections from her ongoing body of work Same Time—acrylic drawings and dye sublimation prints on velvet, glass, and clear film—interact with plinths, props, and a new, immersive sound installation.
