Shawn Huckins: Athenaeum (I Can’t Pretend That This Is Poetry)
Foster/White Gallery
The reverence of American mythology converges with contemporary internet jargon in this new exhibit by Shawn Huckins. Recreating by hand the classic American portraits and landscape paintings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, then intruding on their stateliness with meme-ready white text and imagery, Huckins bridges two vast frontiers: the new world, from which the American concept emerged and spread across the continent, and the internet, where the instantaneousness of communication gave rise to new language. Opening reception, 6–8pm

The presented work from the 20 participating artists maintains the visual language of street art— the vivid color and line work—highlighting the abstract expressionist roots of graffiti culture.
