Theaster Gates: Amalgam

Palais de Tokyo

20 Feb 201915 May 2019

For his first solo museum exhibition in France, Theaster Gates has initiated an entirely new project that explores social histories of migration and interracial relations using a specific episode in American history as his point of departure to address larger questions of black subjugation and the imperial sexual domination and racial mixing that resulted from it. These historical themes and their material realities have given rise to new cinematographic, sculptural and musical perspectives in Theaster Gates’s oeuvre, while enabling Theaster Gates to examine the history of land ownership and race relations in the Northeastern United States.
