Peter Williams, DNA, 2020, oil on canvas, 72 x 96 inches

This show is held concurrent with and is an extension of, his solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and the alternative space Trinosophes.  

“Black Universe” is an exhibition of new figurative and abstract work by artist Peter Williams, whose visually seductive paintings intertwine art historical references and allegory with current events and personal life experiences.  Over the course of more than 45 years, Williams’ practice has actively confronted a multitude of subjects, including the oppressive social structures of white supremacy and discrimination. Williams’ paintings present an uncensored perspective of dominant contemporary culture—challenging our desires, humor, and understanding of humanity.

On view: July 9 – October 10, 2020
