Circus Surprise

Nari Ward: Sun Splashed opening party

Be one of the first to explore Sun Splashed, a mid-career survey of the found-object assemblage art of Nari Ward. Animated by flânerie—the idle, detached observation of street life that 19th-century writers associated with the rise of modern cities—and making reference to African tribal art, Ward’s oeuvre resonates with the Barnes collection and speaks with penetrating insight and imagination to a broad range of subjects, including black history and culture, the dynamics of power and politics, and Caribbean diaspora identity.
