Bryce Olen Robinson's exhibition investigates the tension between Ferguson as place and Ferguson as a cultural construct. Having lived in Ferguson for over two decades, these new works are the residue of his personal struggle to understand and redress his own point of origin. The pieces shown will represent a wide range of material approaches, including (but not limited to) sculpture, drawing, video, and performance artifacts.

The talk will be followed by a discussion moderated by Jessica Guzman-Rea, director of the Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center. A reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Hartnett Gallery.

The event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Harnett Gallery.
