Robert Williams Talk and Tour
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Fort Wayne Museum of Art
‘Robert Williams: SLANG Aesthetics!’ is the Midwestern debut for a new body of work by the champion of underground artists, Robert Williams. As both patriarch and outlaw, Williams’ enduring influence on the movement is undeniable. A true maverick who sought to create vital work that channeled the shifting energies and immediacy of the countercultural from the 1960s onward, Williams’ self-described “Conceptual Realist” paintings invoked a return to craftsmanship, figuration, and demotic imagery that rejected the more elitist tenets of conceptual minimalism.
