Atkinson--Hunger (detail), 1975 (1)

Description


Conrad Atkinson, a British artist who has developed new strategies to integrate art and politics, will exhibit works on paper from the early 70’s to the present. The continuity of Atkinson’s work lies in his direct engagement and activist stance. Exploring social issues that relate to the tragedy of human suffering, Atkinson investigates war, corporate malfeasance, and the gap between the powerful and the impoverished everywhere. He does it not with didactic accusations but with a delicate and exquisite touch, as well as what was described by Art in America as “a wicked sense of humor.”
