crossed kalunga by the stars & other acts of resistance
Through March 12th, 2022
crossed kalunga by the stars & other acts of resistance features work by seven contemporary artists who evidence transformative and contested circumstances in their production. Art by José Bedia, Athlone Clarke, André Leon Gray, Esmerelda Mila, Rex Miller, Marielle Plaisir, and Renée Stout navigates awareness and adversity in conversation with nature and memory. Each shares a distinctive perspective on how art can speak provocative truths amidst a sea of mutable facts. In her/his own way, each artist gathers and weaves real and imagined histories — past and recent — to embed their art with layers of creative, ancestral, and spiritual DNA to elucidate possible features in formation.
Chris Hondros — Conflict photography
Through January 8th, 2022
An NC alumnus, photographer Chris Hondros was killed in 2011 while working in Libya, along with film director Tim Hetherington. Before his death Hondros had arranged for Getty Images to gift the Gregg a selection of his award-winning photos, many of which will be on display in this exhibition. “Hondros,” a documentary of the life and legacy of this talented war photojournalist, directed by Greg Campbell, is also available on Netflix.
Pastels and Drawings by Will Henry Stevens
Through January 8th, 2022
Stevens (1881 – 1949) was an American modernist and impressionist painter and naturalist. He is best known for his paintings and tonal pastels of the rural Southern landscape, abstractions of nature, and non-objective works, created while he summered in Asheville, NC. Using pastels of his own making, he was influenced by, among others, the impressionistic paintings of the Sung Dynasty, the poetry of Walt Whitman, and modernists Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee.
