Robert Colescott: An American Original
This program looks at paintings by Robert Colescott as seen in a 1982 mid career exhibition at the Phyllis Kind Gallery in SOHO. In his beautiful and provocative work, Colescott addresses issues that pertain to his role as an African American in contemporary art. With irony and an acerbic sense of humor, he depicts race relations, politics, religion, social status, historical events and more. In a lengthy interview, he discusses these issues in his work. Lowery Sims, associate curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Phyllis Kind, the artist’s dealer, talk about Colescott’s controversial and masterful paintings.
