William Scott

A comprehensive survey of the artist's 30-year artistic research

Studio Voltaire, 1A Nelsons Row, London SW4 7JR, UK

Studio Voltaire, London, hosts the first significant survey dedicated to William Scott‘s 30-year practice and his first solo exhibition outside the USA. Scott’s painted portraits, mainly of black people, investigate questions of citizenship, community and cultural memory, both to document and reshape reality. For example, he describes the social topography of his native San Francisco, reimagining it as an ideal city. Among the portrayed subjects, there are icons such as Prince, Kamala Harris, Oprah and Janet Jackson, but also members of his church, family, or other San Francisco citizens.
