“On Documentary Abstraction” explores the ways contemporary artists are using abstract painting and sculpture to document, discuss and revisualize recent history. Featuring artists Torkwase Dyson, Eugenio Espinoza, Tomashi Jackson, Richard Ibghy, Marilou Lemmens and others, the works in “On Documentary Abstraction” examine the history of lynching in the southern United States, civil rights legislation, and labor exploitation in the 20th century, among other topics.
This exhibition will be accompanied by a series of talks and film programs on expanded forms of visual abstraction and the rich historical connections between politics and abstract art.
