Opening Reception – Fragile Figures: Beings and Time

Join us at 6pm for complementary cocktails and passed canapés as we celebrate the opening of our exhibition, Fragile Figures: Beings and Time. Featured Artist Alfred Conteh will speak in conversation with Chief Curator Alice Gray Stites at 7pm!

The artists featured in Fragile Figures: Beings and Time illuminate the range and complexity of human emotions, revealing intersections between vulnerability and power – social, cultural, and political – in contemporary portraiture. Individual and group identity, and the forces that shape how we see self and other, are approached through direct references to noted works from art history, connecting past events to current issues.

About the Artist:
Alfred Conteh’s work is an ongoing visual representation of how African diasporic societies are fighting social, economic, educational, and psychological conflict both internally and externally. Conteh received his BFA in Fine Art from Hampton University and his MFA in Fine Art from Georgia Southern University, and currently lives in Atlanta.
