Presented by Art Galleries at Black Studies
“with new eyes…” features new works by Austin-based artist Adrian Armstrong. The drawings and mixed media works explore the intersection of traditional portraiture and representations of Black people, just as they consider the mercurial nature of identity—particularly as it relates to race and gender.
The exhibition deals with Black visual representation and pushes audiences to think beyond binaries when it comes to race. The artist thinks about the legacy of portraiture, colorism, and how Black people have traditionally been represented as stereotypes.
