Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series Presents Cullen Washington Jr.

When: Thu., Jan. 23, 5:10-6:10 p.m. 2020

Cullen Washington Jr.’s work offers meditations on human interconnectivity and “the universal framework that undergirds all things.” Fusing seemingly disparate concepts via the connective tissues of mixed media, Washington uses nonrepresentational abstraction to understand order, chaos, social relationships, and other natural phenomena. The work takes audiences on a vibrant journey through and with materiality — a concerted and haptic interplay between gestures of painting and drawing and the modes of reproduction. In the exhibition Cullen Washington Jr.: The Public Square,his most recent series, Agoras, explores the “agora” — the ancient Greek public space — as a central "gathering place".
