This event has ended.

This exhibition is the first to survey the prints, drawings, and other works on paper of the New Jersey–based artist Willie Cole (b. 1955). With a selection spanning more than thirty years, from a circa 1977 pastel self-portrait, a giant woodcut print of a slave ship evoked with an ironing board, and a wide array of steam-iron impressions, to recent foreboding, graphic novel–like images, guest curator Patterson Sims demonstrates that this artist—best known for his sculpture—has found many ways with works on paper to explore deep cultural and personal impressions.
