AugustaIntroducing | Fahamu Pecou
Pontone Gallery is thrilled to present a collection of recent paintings and limited edition photographs by Atlanta-based artist Fahamu Pecou. Introducing | Fahamu Pecou marks the artist’s debut exhibition with Pontone Gallery.
In his paintings, videos, original music and performance-based projects, Pecou raises questions about the images and representations that inform contemporary readings and performances of Black male masculinity. By engaging with various stereotypes and misconceptions about Black men, both those imposed and those assumed, Pecou attempts a critical intervention concerning the visible and invisible threads that make up our collective understandings of Black identity.
