Icons 2007–2017

April 20August 27, 2017

Rico Gatson: Icons 2007–2017 presents a selection of the artist’s works on paper featuring renowned figures of African-American history and culture, sourced from well-known photographs. By juxtaposing these found photographs with hard-edge geometric lines in a palette featuring red, black and green—implying Pan-Africanism—Gatson evokes the foundational importance to black consciousness of the people who are depicted, while also emphasizing the cultural, social and political implications of color and pattern.

Rico Gatson: Icons 2007–2017 is organized by Hallie Ringle, Assistant Curator.
