Painter Hurvin Anderson (b. 1965, UK) reflects on illusory and fragmentary space and depictions of black figures and experience in The Unseen, an artist-curated selection of 25 works from the Christen Sveaas Art Foundation.
Drawing on the prologue to American writer Ralph Ellison’s celebrated novel, Invisible Man (1952), about the invisibility of black lives, Anderson brings together lesser-known artists with modern and contemporary figures, each of whom explore aspects of ‘the unseen’ using materials from coal dust and fabric to fibre and glass.
The exhibition includes work by: Michael Bevilacqua, Ross Bleckner, Amoake Boafo, Svein Bolling, Roed Laerum Borghild, Constantin Brancusi, Matt Connors, Lars Elling, Tewedros Hagos, Mona Orstad Hansen, Thore Heramb, Howard Hodgkin, Per Krohg, Glenn Ligon, Ibrahim Mahama, Herman Mbamba, Simphiwe Ndzube, Henrik Placht, Robert Rauschenberg, Caragh Thuring, Judy Sirks Vevie, Jacob Weidemann, Stanley Whitney, Christopher Wool, and Toby Ziegler.
