Liliana Bloch Gallery is proud to announce «40 Acres Gumbo Ya Ya», a solo exhibition by Letitia Huckaby. «40 Acres Gumbo Ya Ya» is a poetic examination of a promise made by Union General William Sherman for agrarian reform to enslaved African American farmers. Gumbo Ya Ya is a colloquial term that means, “everybody talks at once.” In that regard, the artist is referencing broken agreements (just words) and the continual discussion (everybody talking at once) about the Blues originating past.

Huckaby’s images were taken in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, and they depict a rural southern landscape, the reality and longings of a neglected culture steeped in disappointment. Framed in vintage embroidery hoops, the landscape embodies the hopes and dreams of one generation to the next.
