Laylah Ali’s most famous and longest-running series of paintings depict brown-skinned and gender-neutral Greenheads and have been included in the Venice Biennale (2003) and the Whitney Biennial (2004) and were the subject of a major 2012–2013 touring exhibition originating at the Williams College Museum of Art and traveling to the Weisman Museum at the University of Minnesota and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University. Ali’s works are included in the permanent collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, among many others.
