A Conversation with Cullen Washington, Jr.: The Hope of Abstraction and the Possibilities of the Public Square

Artist Cullen Washington, Jr. uses non-representational abstraction to understand order, chaos, and social relationships. His practice makes use of the grid to physically and metaphorically flatten hierarchies and rank to create a new conception of the possibilities for a public square. Washington sees this public space as an ideal "gathering place" for activated assembly and inclusive democracy. Please join Mr. Washington and exhibition curator Vera Grant on opening day for a conversation about the role of art, artists, and the “hope of abstraction” within our current battles for the public square. Light refreshments to follow.
