Black Like Me

By Fred Wilson

Our Price: $18.00
Never hesitant to explore new territory, Fred Wilson,, in a major solo exhibition @The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, displays his growing interest in the medium of glass. The present exhibition takes its title from John Howard Griffin's ground-breaking eponymously titled book. A white civil rights activist, Griffin dyed his skin black and traveled throughout the South to directly encounter the nature of racial prejudice. Known for incorporating found objects into his art as a vehicle for cultural and institutional critique, Wilson takes a more personal, introspective direction in his exploration of racial and ethnic marginalization.
