HMAAC is delighted to present a solo exhibition of David McGee, curated by Benito Huerta. Well-known for his narrative paintings since the 1990s, this will be the first representation of McGee's work at HMAAC. This survey of McFee's works on paper underscores the depth of McGee's love for poetry; his image to the history of painting; while it also journeys into his perpetual investigation of topics that have fascinated him boyhood-imagery, politics, race, class, pop culture, and their intersections. McGee is known to incite, confuse or arrest his audiences; expect no less from him in this exhibition.
