Jasper Johns Hatteras 1963

  • Not on view

Statements Known and Statements New [an exhibition held at the Just Above Midtown gallery] brought together two works on paper: a [David] Hammons body print, which he made by oiling his body, pressing himself on paper, and then applying powder pigments, and Johns’s Hatteras, named after an island in North Carolina that had served as a refuge for fugitive enslaved people during the Civil War. Linda Goode Bryant [founder of the Just Above Midtown gallery] described the exhibition as “a forum that presented Afro-American artists on the same platform with other established artists,” bringing together a mostly younger generation of artists of color with widely recognized white artists.
