Artists’ Legacy Foundation invites you to a conversation with 2020 Artist Award recipient Peter Williams and Dr. Jordana Moore Saggese, Associate Professor of American Art at the University of Maryland. This online event will take place on Friday, November 13 at 4 pm PST / 7 pm EST via Zoom. Registration is free and easy — sign up here.
For more than four decades, Williams has created artworks that explore contemporary culture, racism, police brutality, incarceration, environmentalism, and voyeurism through an approachable visual style. His paintings encourage the viewer to look deeply at the canvas for clues and insight about the Black experience. Williams also uses cultural criticism to form new creation myths, retelling the history of America from fresh and cosmic perspectives. His most recent body of work, Black Universe, tells a story of African American colonists who leave Earth due to impending environmental catastrophe.
Saggese and Williams will discuss his early influences, his utilization of color, and the symbols represented in selected paintings.
