aMoratorium Created by J'Sun Howard

Event Type
Event Description

Charles Wilbert White (1918-1979) was one of the preeminent artists to emerge during the city’s Black Renaissance of the 1930s and 1940s. A passionate mural and easel painter and superbly gifted draftsman, White powerfully interpreted African American history, culture, and lives in striking works that transcend racial categorization. First commissioned by the Art Institute of Chicago to respond to the Charles Wilbert White Retrospective, aMoratorium explores black male identity, visibility, temporality and its absence, focusing on death as it relates to the Black church and Black spiritual traditions.
