Call the gallery for an appointment. (Please note that the exhibition will open to the public on Thursday, July 9th; however, in accordance with local health mandates, the gallery will not be hosting an artist reception.)

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

This show is held concurrent to, 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of new figurative and abstract work by artist Peter Williams, whose visually seductive paintings intertwine art historical references and allegory with current events and personal life experiences.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

Call gallery for an appointment – 310 838 6000; 2685 S. La Cienega Blvd., LA, 90034; https://www.luisdejesus.com/
