Curated by Alexandra Schwartz, American Histories brings to London nine New York based artists working in drawing. Kenseth Armstead, Firelei Báez, Maria Berrio, Chitra Ganesh, Fay Ku, Lina Puerta, Frohawk Two Feathers, William Villalongo, and Saya Woolfalk explore cultural histories through figurative drawing. Their work reflects their own diverse heritages and influences, while speaking more broadly to the array of international cultures that make up that of the United States. During a time of global discord over issues of difference, American Histories spotlights how artists examine such themes through a personal lens.
