Anthony Titus

Ruptures and Reconciliations

July 17–September 26, 2021

The first exhibition of the 2021 Season is Anthony Titus’s Ruptures and Reconciliations. Anthony Titus is an artist, architect, and educator whose work exemplifies ’T’ Space’s mission to synthesize the arts across disciplines. This season, we have selected the poet Cathy Park Hong and the musician Anthony Braxton whose practices have deep connections to Titus. A generative discussion will take place at the virtual opening event, followed by a Q&A.

Titus is showing works that originate from poetry excerpts from Richard Wright’s Haiku which are transposed into fluid monochromatic compositions that create a dance between light, space, and color. Anthony Titus describes the process of making the works as “a cycle of making, unmaking, and remaking” that closely mirrors how “the current social fabric seems to be coming apart in ways that are unprecedented.” Being one of the most influential African- American writers, Wright’s works is a fitting vantage point to contemplate on the societal tensions we are currently witnessing.
