Kerry James Marshall : Biennale de Montréal: The Grand Balcony,
MONTREAL, CANADA • Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal • 19 October 2016 - 29 January 2017
Creating portraits, interiors, nudes and landscapes in various mediums, Marshall conflates actual and imagined events from African-American history and culture.
For the Biennale de Montréal, he has produced a new series of lightboxes that are a continuation of his work Rythm Mastr, a comic strip featuring an urban superhero who battles the forces of evil using a combination of futuristic and traditional African accoutrements.
Born in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1955, Marshall grew up in Los Angeles, where he graduated from the Otis College of Art and Design in 1978. He currently lives in Chicago. His works have been presented around the world, including at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2014) and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (2013). In 2013, he was one of seven new appointees to President Barack Obama’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. Other prestigious awards include a 1991 fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a 1997 grant from the MacArthur Foundation and the Wolfgang Hahn Award in 2014.
