Explore works by artist Lauren Halsey that traverse time and cultures, but remain rooted in her community of South Central Los Angeles. Halsey remixes signs and symbols inspired by her neighborhood and juxtaposes them with works from the MFA’s collection of ancient Egyptian and Nubian art.  In the words of the artist, these works are “fantastical cartographies”—maps that trace heritage from the African continent to the contemporary Black and African American diasporas in the United States.
