Ubiquitous Presence: Selected Works by Barbara Bullock
September 15 - October 30, 2022
Born in 1938 and raised in Philadelphia, Bullock is one of the Mid-Atlantic region's most notable and widely-respected artists. She has spent nearly sixty years challenging European artistic and cultural conventions; offering new ways of approaching form, color, and process; and investigating complex ideas related to gender, belief systems, dreams, and other aspects of identity. Shifting between abstract and figurative modes, Bullock centers and honors diverse Black cultures. She also prioritizes the cultivation of relationships – both ancestral and contemporary – in every aspect of her life and practice.
