Robert Williams On Tour: SLANG Aesthetics! at The Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum
It seems appropriate that Juxtapoz Founder and self-described “Conceptual Realist” painter Robert Williams has seen his retrospective, SLANG Aesthetics!, crisscross the United States in recent years. Stemming from roots in New Mexico and Alabama, as well as his later immersion in the West Coast, “the new cultural frontier,” as described by Walter Hopps, Williams draws from a scintillating color palette to add two glorious allegories for his traveling show, fresh from the heartland. It’s a pleasure to introduce Sequential Dissension and The Veil of Paternity, accompanied by Robert’s nuanced narrative.
