This event has ended.

Lyles & King presents four new paintings by Farley Aguilar in the gallery project room. In this work, Aguilar addresses history, trauma, and the body. In Accused Woman, Shorn Woman, Unknown Woman, and Crippled Children the body is scapegoated–– it acts as the flashpoint and symptom of social turmoil. Through the lens of his paintings, he meditates on fundamental social balances: the shift between seeing and being seen, between agency and objectification, between victim and perpetrator, perhaps most importantly, the relationship between the individual and the crowd.
