Contested Identities: The Recent Work of Peter Williams

August 24 – October 8, 2016

Peter Williams, an African-American artist and an amputee, explores issues of race and identity in America, his own personal experiences, and a world of fantasy, fear and delight in his richly nuanced paintings. His lush, painterly storytelling reveals a deeply resonant social critique that is both humorous and deadly serious. Curated by Susan Hagen.
