UNTITLED, ART Online presents: Peter Williams in Conversation with John Yau

Peter Williams in Conversation with John Yau

Join artist Peter Williams and art critic John Yau for a discussion of Williams painting The George Floyd Triptych (2020), the centerpiece of Luis De Jesus Los Angeles's booth at UNTITLED, ART Online.

For more than 40 years Williams has chronicled current and historical events, interspersing pictorial narratives with personal anecdotes and fictional characters in order to create paintings about the diverse experiences of Black Americans. With boldness and humor, he tackles the darkest of subjects including, but not limited to, police brutality, lynching, slavery, mass incarceration, and other realms of racial oppression. Williams uses cultural criticism to form new creation myths, retelling the history of America from fresh and cosmic perspectives.
