Luis De Jesus featured in "The End of the American Dream"

...When De Jesus was forced to close in March, he transitioned to an online platform and even managed to make a couple of sales. Given that the gallery was able to reopen for private appointments last month, he’s cautiously optimistic. As a whole, however, the industry has taken a hit: In an Art Dealers Association of America survey of nearly 170 art galleries in April and May, galleries across the country forecasted a gross revenue loss of 73 percent in the second quarter of this year...

PETER WILLIAMS: BLACK UNIVERSE @ MoCAD

Compelling works intertwine art historical references, allegories, current events, and personal life experiences. In this two-part exhibition, which presents more than two dozen paintings, the artist addresses difficult social issues, such as racial discrimination and climate change, through symbolic imagery, grotesque figures, and vibrant compositions.

CAITLIN CHERRY ON DIGITAL ABSTRACTION AND BLACK FEMININITY

 Here, the slipperiness of digital images comes up against the slickness of oil paint, which she manipulates into a kind of filter that both obscures and refracts representations of Black femininity.

PETER WILLIAMS' BLACK UNIVERSE FEATURED IN 'ARTS AT AND OUT OF HOME'

With vibrant palettes and expressive drawing presenting scenes and figures from an off-beat Afrofuturist fantasy, Williams’ paintings have the energy of folk and Outsider style and the pure imagination of science fiction. The world they describe is both a possible reality ahead and a revisitation of ancestral tradition from the past — and ultimately a metaphor for the inner work of reframing identity and consciousness.

FORCED TO CLOSE THEIR DOORS, ART GALLERIES EMBRACE ONLINE EXHIBITIONS

In response to the closure of their physical spaces, L.A. art galleries have embraced online exhibitions to an unprecedented degree. This transition has changed the way they present artworks and, unexpectedly, how they relate to one another.

MUESUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART DETROIT & TRINOSOPHES

Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit in collaboration with guest curators Larry Ossei-Mensah and Rebecca Mazzei, the exhibition highlights new figurative works from Williams’ Black Exodus series (on view at MOCAD) and Narration and Transition, a survey of abstract paintings (on view at Trinosophes) that are an essential aspect of his dynamic oeuvre. Williams presents an uncensored picture of dominant contemporary culture, one in which our desires, our humor, our complicity and brutality are unsuppressed.

'IT WAS A MODERN-DAY LYNCHING': VIOLENT DEATHS REFLECT A BRUTAL AMERICAN LEGACY

Artist Ken Gonzales-Day has been widely recognized for the “Erased Lynching” series, which include lynching postcard photos that effectively “erased’ the victims of lynching and focused on the white crowds gathered to witness the murders. Gonzales-Day argues that the erasure of the lynching victim “allows the viewer to see, for the first time, the social dynamics of the lynching itself.”

"Like many other galleries, we are looking for ways to stay present and relevant.

We’re in production mode—a good thing."
