Rico Gatson: Power Portraits opened in the College Gallery on March 4, 2020. The exhibition closed only three days later after the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered public spaces across the country. This virtual version of the original exhibition includes twelve collages from Gatson’s Icons series, two paintings, a still from the film Four Stations, and a virtual walk-through of the original installation. We are pleased to share an artist talk produced by Gatson in which he discusses his artistic practice and answers questions submitted by Delaware County Community College students.

This exhibition also served as the centerpiece for the Spring 2020 Humanities 100: Introduction to the Visual Arts course at Delaware County Community College. Students produced original research on Gatson’s work, which formed the basis for object labels. To read these labels and the original catalog essay that accompanied the March exhibition, please see the Rico Gatson: Power Portraits Catalog Essay & Student Labels.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Communication, Arts & Humanities Division and in part by a grant from the Mellon/ACLS Community College Faculty Fellowship.
