In Light of the Hunt

Art Show: 07/09/2023 • All Day • New York

Event Details

Sperone Westwater is pleased to present Shaunté Gates’ second solo exhibition at the gallery, showcasing the artist’s new series “In Light of the Hunt.” In these mixed media paintings, set loosely within the journey upriver in Francis Ford Coppola’s film Apocalypse Now, dreams intertwine with reality, theater and myth, drawing the viewer into what Carl Jung’ refers to as “The Shadow”: the aspects of our personalities that exert a powerful influence, despite our attempts at repression. Gates’ work expands this concept beyond the individual to society as a whole.

This show runs until October 28th.
