Winfred Rembert: Amazing Grace
August 31 through January 19, 2014
This was the first major museum exhibition dedicated to Winfred Rembert, a remarkable self-taught artist originally from Georgia who has lived in New Haven, CT for the past thirty years. A mid-career survey, this exhibition emphasized the dramatic, overtly biographical nature of Rembert’s stretched, etched, and stained leather panels. Rembert’s work combines his artistic inspiration with documentation of some of the most tumultuous moments of Civil Rights-era history.
Organized by the Hudson River Museum, New York
