Valerie Carberry Gallery and Richard Gray Gallery are pleased to present Retreat, an exhibition organized by Theaster Gates. Retreat explores ways in which artists of color perform retreat in diverse forms with manifold meanings and how retreat, both as an act of withdrawal and an act of contemplation, yields a position of strength and perspective when communicated through art.
The exhibition will feature artists Derrick Adams, Erika Allen, Elizabeth Axtman, Bethany Collins, Tony Lewis, Kelly Lloyd, Valerie Piraino, Mitchell Squire, Wilmer Wilson IV, and Nate Young. It will be held in Valerie Carberry and Richard Gray’s adjacent galleries on the 38th floor of the John Hancock Center.
