Washington, DC, DC


Visual Arts

Theaster Gates weaves together personal and cultural narratives, creating objects that speak to a particular time and place, and to the arc of American history. Popularly known for large-scale projects that transform vacant buildings into work of art, Gates has said that he is motivated by a desire to “reenvision place. . . not just as an art project, but as a way of living.”

The exhibition is located in the East Building, Tower in Gallery 501 in the National Gallery of Art.
