Alumnus Lyndon Barrois Jr's Work Featured at the Great Rivers Biennial

Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis

Through a multi-disciplinary practice including installation, painting, and sculpture, Lyndon Barrois Jr. examines questions of aesthetic value, race and representation, and the creation of meaning through imagery in popular culture. Of Color situates eight life-size assemblages-composed of cropped images of athletes, fashion models, and domestic objects culled from magazines-on an asphalt basketball court. By repositioning this outdoor setting within the protected space of the Museum, the artist asks viewers to consider how people, cultures, and lifestyles typically sited on the periphery can gain visibility in a new context.
