Tarble Art Center: A Dark Matter

A Dark Matter…
Tarble Art Center, Charleston, Univ. of IL
Aug. 13 – Oct. 30, 2016

A Dark Matter… is an exhibition, or better yet a visual conversation, about violence, economics and power. Using works by contemporary artists, A Dark Matter… examines the intersection of American violence and commerce, while also investigating how these power dynamics influence current American actions and attitudes. This exhibition not only seeks to explore murky and tumultuous terrain, it also seeks to create a dialogue about how we can forge ahead together, despite a dark history.

Artists featured in the exhibition are: Ken Gonzales Day, Samuel Levi Jones, Glenn Ligon, Shaun Leonardo, jc lenochan, Demetrious Oliver, Ebony G. Patterson, Jason Patterson, Cheryl Pope, Sheila Pree Bright, Dread Scott, Travis Somerville, Carrie Mae Weems and Hank Willis Thomas.
