Cassi Namoda's Holiday Gift Guide

In the four years since her first solo show, the artist Cassi Namoda has created a powerful body of work through her evocative and poignant paintings, which chronicle everyday life in post-colonial Mozambique, where Namoda was born. Having grown up between Africa, Haiti and the U.S., Namoda now lives between East Hampton and Los Angeles, where her largest-to-date exhibition, " Forgotten Limbs," debuts this weekend at the François Ghebaly gallery.
