UnBound Exhibition

Eric N. Mack
Zuckerman Museum of Art, Kennesaw, GA
7 February - 10 May, 2020

Unbound brings together a multigenerational group of artists, among them Eric N. Mack, whose work takes an inventive and experimental approach to abstraction. Using Kobena Mercer’s definition of ‘discrepant abstraction’ — hybrid and partial, elusive and repetitive, obstinate and strange, including almost everything that does not neatly fit into the institutional narrative of abstract art as a monolithic quest for purity, Unbound explores the continued legacy of black artists who have utilized abstraction as a nonconformist visual language, and a lens through which social and political realities can be understood.
