Barcelona, Catalonia | Summer Exhibitions 2014 | Fundació Antoni Tàpies

Kerry James Marshall. Painting and other stuff is the most important exhibition in Europe to date of the work of the American artist (Birmingham, Alabama, 1955). Author of an important figurative body of work, Kerry James Marshall addresses questions of identity – national, gender, but especially racial – and responds to an investigation in order to contextualise the African American experience in the current socio-political situation. While his work is evidence of what the artist calls a 'vacuum in the image bank', questioning existing systems of legitimation, his painting goes beyond denunciation. Technically complex and risky in the invention of new images that contribute to filling this vacuum, Marshall finds as much inspiration in popular culture – the cinema, and especially the comic – as in art.
