Color Conversion: Works by William Villalongo Opening Reception
Come view William Villalongo's Color Conversion: Selected Works, an exhibition of mixed-media prints and paintings that investigate the blurred space between history and myth. The artist describes his oeuvre as “about historical twisting—Modernism and Colonialism and the complex nature of how they relate to each other (Tampa Bay Times, March 23, 2013).” Recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant, Villalongo’s work is represented in the holdings of The Whitney Museum of Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, Yale University Art Gallery and El Museo del Barrio. Free and open to the public.

Pop-up Readings! Throughout the evening, Cave Canem fellows E J Antonio, Ama Codjoe, t’ai freedom ford, Jonterri Gadson, Ebony Golden, Darrel Holnes, Kyla Marshell and Laura Swearingen-Steadwell will read the poems they contributed to Cave Canem Anthology XIV: Poems 2010-2011, a forthcoming collection boasting cover art by Mr. Villalongo. The 105-page anthology is due out from Willow Books in early March 2015.

Guests will receive complimentary loose-leaf samplers of poems from the collection and have an opportunity to place pre-paid orders for Cave Canem Anthology XIV: Poems 2010-2011 at the pre-pub price of $13 ($18 value).

The exhibition will be on display through March 19, 2015 and may be viewed by appointment, Monday-Thursday, 11 am – 5 pm.
