Reception: Peter Williams: Incarceration - Cressman Center For Visual Arts - Louisville

The Hite Art Institute invites you to the opening reception of Peter Williams: Incarceration, Friday February 7 from 6-8 pm. Peter Williams: Incarceration features new work by the celebrated painter Peter Williams. The show explores the ways that historical conditions of black incarceration—the middle passage, slavery and escape—can be read through current modes of black incarceration—prison, cultural appropriation, and the legacy effects of redlining. But beyond the politics of Williams’ art lies an inventive painterly mind. Incarceration offers novel insight into the modernist grid and various compositional interventions like the flatting of the picture plane and expressionistic use of line and color.Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
