Hungerford Gallery: Wesley Clark

Target Mis Taken Identity

"When Our Rivers Collide" by Wesley Clark
September 3 - October 17, 2019, La Plata Campus, Fine Arts Center, Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery

Artist Lecture: October 17, 2019, 2:45 p.m.

The foundation of the work is to challenge and draw parallels between historical and contemporary cultural issues. My primary focus surrounds blacks in America and the African Diaspora. The targeting of black men and women, gentrification, reparations, and the overall state of the country take center stage as issues at the forefront of our lives today. Objects that are antiques or antiqued are associated with historical relevance and wealth. By placing these issues in an antiqued aesthetic, I am linking the value and relevance in furthering a discussion around a particular issue. Presenting historic and contemporary social and economic disparities drive my conceptual process.
