Life, Liberty and Pursuit … looks at the contributions of African culture to American culture through the work of SOL’SAX, and the effects of racial systems on members of the African American community portrayed by Dread Scott. Both established artists, using a wide array of new visual and auditory media, create work addressing issues and ambiguities in the uneveness of the cultural experience of Afro- and Euro-centric populations in America. People around the world were shocked by the racial division in the wake of hurricane Katrina, making it timely to explore African cultural retention and racial systems in America.
Curated by Catherine Amidon, director of exhibitions.
