Maya Stovall, The Public Library, vol. 1, no. 5, choreographic photographs: Untitled 1 (“Spyglass”), 2018.

Maya Stovall: Compulsion and Heart places the artist’s Saskatoon centered project, The Public Library (2018-ongoing), in dialogue with her global practice and bodies of work. The Public Library, a series of video and photo documented conceptual performances and discussions in the streets and sidewalks surrounding Saskatoon’s downtown public library branch, emerged during Stovall’s artist residency at AKA.

Equally anthropological research and conceptual art practice, in The Public Library, the artist meditates the politics of space and place in a fraught and complex city. In Maya Stovall: Compulsion and Heart, for the first time, the artist’s Liquor Store Theatre (2014-17) and Water City (2018-ongoing) projects, each meditating on the complexities of city life in Detroit, Michigan, are placed in direct dialogue with her Saskatoon works, provoking a dialogue between the two cities and the two countries, and the people on the streets and sidewalks who make the art and life of a city happen, day in and day out.



Dr. Maya Stovall (b. 1982 in Detroit, Michigan, lives and works in Pomona, Calif.) She is a Whitney Biennial artist (2017), and F-Series artist at the Studio Museum in Harlem (Fictions, 2017-18), and is artist and Assistant Professor at Cal Poly Pomona, in the Dept. of Liberal Studies. Interested in what she considers monumental questions of human existence, her Liquor Store Theatre (2014-17, Detroit, Michigan) and Public Library (2018-ongoing, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada) bodies of work investigate the politics of space and place alongside people’s complex reflections on city life.
