New Drawings

Dawolu Jabari Anderson

 

Houston artist Dawolu Jabari Anderson creates mixed media works on paper that take products from popular culture together with dark humor to critique the role of the media in manufacturing images of African Americans that commodify their history and experience in modern and contemporary culture.  Anderson's work was featured in the 2006 Whitney Biennial individually as well in the collective Otabenga Jones & Associates, of which he is a founding member.  The collective's work was most recently shown (2008) at the Menil Collection in Houston.
