January 25 - May 10, 2020
East Galleries, Zuckerman Museum of Art
Reception: Saturday, Jan. 25, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Unbound brings together a multigenerational group of artists whose work takes an inventive
and experimental approach to abstraction. Their works consider the essential elements
of abstract painting: color, form, gesture, line, and space, through unorthodox use
of materials that break the confines of a rectangular canvas, and implode the boundaries
between painting, sculpture, and installation. The works on view hang, stretch, tether,
and dangle off the walls, breaking free from the bounds of figuration, and complicating
the boundaries of painting itself.
Unbound features the work of Romare Bearden, Sam Gilliam, Joe Overstreet, Eric N. Mack, Anthony Akinbola, Krista
Clark, and Tariku Shiferaw.
