Enrico Riley: New World
February 16 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Artist Talk at 6 pm
Enrico Riley in Conversation with Antwaun Sargent, Writer and Critic
The paintings are part of an unfolding and evolving cycle that investigates themes of historical and contemporary violence, martyrdom, grief, and the middle passage within a spatial domain.
Enrico Riley challenges viewers to decipher and contextualize his work’s fractured narratives. For many Americans, exposure to the plethora of recent media examples of reflexive violence perpetrated on African-Americans has blurred the boundaries between the historical record with which our country is so familiar and the problems still facing contemporary culture today.
