Free Arts NYC
Free Arts NYC’s mission is to empower underserved youth through art and mentoring programs that are designed to develop their creativity, confidence, and skills to succeed.
Available exclusively on Artspace, Grateful Dead Afro Cat Show, 2021 spotlights Strother’s trademark boldness, wit, and embrace of materiality, brought to life by distinct paint elements that speckle the image’s enveloping nightscape. Devin Troy Strother is known for incorporating pop culture and personal narratives as well as humor and language in his multimedia works to explore alternative racial narratives; inspired by Strother’s new body of work currently on view at Broadway in New York City, Grateful Dead Afro Cat Show, 2021 centers two cartoonish felines floating inside a rainbow afro suspended in an infinite night sky. Strother’s appealing visual forms belie a critical examination of complex subjects which confront the viewer with some of the most pressing social questions of our time.
