Robert Williams: Slang Aesthetics! visits Louisiana with the opening of it’s latest showing this Thursday, March 8th, at the LSU Museum of Art. The exhibition will be on view throughout the spring and summer, closing June 17th.
Here is what the museum had to say about its upcoming exhibition:
Presented courtesy of the artist, Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman, Robert Williams: Slang Aesthetics showcases 25 new oil paintings and ephemera by the artist upheld as the godfather of the lowbrow and pop surrealist art movements. A true maverick who sought to create work that channeled the shifting energies and immediacy of counterculture, from the 1960s onward, Williams’ paintings invoked a return to craftsmanship, figuration and popular imagery that rejected the elitist tenets of conceptual minimalism.
