Walter Price, I don't wanna make somebody else. I wanna make myself., 2022

Pearl Lines

Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
Aug 8, 2024–Dec 15, 2024

Pearl Lines offers the most comprehensive museum exploration to date on the work of artist WALTER PRICE. Price’s paintings are distinguished by his engagement with history, race, and cultural consciousness. While he uses distinct references, the artist also denies any clear articulation of specific events in his imagery. His canvases burst with lush, vivid colors, pulling viewers into his psychically charged interior worlds, in which everyday objects, figures, and domestic environments emerge from swaths of thick color and tangles of lines, marks, and symbols.

Organized around recurring themes and imagery that the artist has explored in recent years, the exhibition brings new insights into Price’s evolving practice, offering opportunities to experience a full range of his significant and never-before-seen works on canvas.

Curated by Rosario Güiraldes, Curator, Visual Arts; with Brandon Eng, Curatorial Assistant, Visual Arts.
