Aaron Fowler: Into Existence

This event is in the past
Wed - Sun, through Jun 28
Seattle Art Museum Pike Pine Retail Core
Every other year the Knight | Lawrence Prize is awarded to an early-career Black artist. And in 2019, the prize went to Harlem, Los Angeles, and St. Louis-based Aaron Fowler, who creates elaborate assemblages made of discarded found objects and other unconventional materials. The results are pieces falling somewhere between painting and sculpture, grander and larger-than-life, that quite literally comes off the wall into the gallery. Looking to the compositional form of American history painting and religious iconography, his mixed-media work addresses issues such as American history, hip-hop, incarceration, and family.
