Theaster Gates

Theaster Gates, A Tussle in the House of Love, 2018. Neon, 32 1/2h × 21w × 4 3/4d in.

Inspired by Du Bois’ 19th century sociological studies, the exhibition will feature a series of paintings in which the statistical data gathered and made visual by Du Bois has been reimagined as abstract color fields and geometric motifs. Both an act of homage to Du Bois’ as well as a reference to the history of art, Gates’ paintings give poetic form to the archival.
