"1981-2021" Panel Discussion
In conjunction with "1981-2021," the ongoing two-person exhibition featuring the paintings of Brooklyn-based artist Aaron Gilbert and the late Chinese-American painter Martin Wong, P·P·O·W is pleased to present a virtual panel discussion between Gilbert; American graffiti artist and friend of Martin Wong, Chris Daze Ellis; and scholar, writer, and curator Rich Blint.

Spanning over 40 years, 1981-2021 focuses on two artists whose practices amplify the societal pressures of both their private lives and the New York communities they inhabit. As Blint writes in the accompanying catalogue essay, "Wong and Gilbert “worry the line” in their subversion of received expectations concerning figuration and abstraction by centering the imaginative and metaphysical, which requires us to linger and trace the outlines of populations we try so desperately not to see given our accidental and momentary avoidance of a similar circumstance." Furthering the intergenerational dialogue established in "1981-2021," this digital discussion will explore each artists' approach to chronicling a continuum of life within a city under siege.
