In ART HISTORY neXt, Fahamu Pecou questions the concepts of inclusion and exclusion within the historical constructs of fine art. His paintings confront the notion of who gets chronicled in the annals of art history by reflecting on and creating a dialogue with prominent artists, whose self-portraits challenged art historical norms and in turn ushered in new ways to consider both art and artistic conceptions.
Fahamu Pecou’s paintings are on view through April 2, 2011.
