Her work focuses on themes related to race, identity, gender, class, and systems of power that are grounded in history, literature, and politics. Long is also a critic who has contributed essays and interviews on fashion and contemporary art to publications widely. Last year, her group exhibition, Elegies: Still Lifes in Contemporary Art, opened at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco and then traveled to the Telfair Museum in Savannah, Georgia. This year, she will organize Elizabeth Colomba: Mythologies opening at the Portland Museum of Art in Maine and a survey of works by the artist Renee Cox at Guild Hall in East Hampton.
