DODGEgallery is pleased to present Bigger Than Shadows\ , a group exhibition co-curated by Rich Blint and Ian Cofre.
< br />Bigger Than Shadows is a group exhibition that explores recent work on the black male body that refashion s\, riffs on\, or re-inflects dominant constructions about the figure known as the black male. Black maleness conjures a host of contradictory associa tions in the American imagination—from questions about historical morality\ , creative virtuosity\, inherent pathology\, to notions of outsized masculi nity and\, paradoxically\, the very absence of masculine authority. Bigg er Than Shadows aims to clear space for a timely exchange among emergin g and established artists about contemporary and future-oriented visual re- presentations of racialized corporeality—of the black male body in the fles h. Participating artists include Derrick Adams\, Noah Davis\, Rico Gatson\, Adler Guerrier\, Lyle Ashton Harris\, Duron Jackson\, Jayson Keeling\, Yas hua Klos\, Deana Lawson\, Kambui Olujimi\, Ebony Patterson\, Robert Pruitt\ , Jacolby Satterwhite\, and more.

Duron Jackson will present a new sculpture titled Bones Crusad e\, 2012\, which expands on his previous work on incarceration\, survei llance\, and the influence and distortionary effects of these systems. Othe r sculptural works by Rico Gatson and Adler Guerrier draw from multiple ref erences\, engaging the urban landscape and its impression on the body throu gh abstractions of language and perception.

The revelatory photographic contributions from Lyle Ash ton Harris\, Jayson Keeling\, and Deana Lawson are documents of subjects th at defy immediate categorization. Harris's and Lawson's examinations of Sou thern subcultures join Keeling\, who is working with a bust of his own face cast by John Ahearn\, rephotographing the sculpture to draw attention to s ubtleties of form through distance.

Yashua Klos's constructions are both fragile and monumental\, n egotiating aspects of identity through fragmentation\, collage\, and camouf lage. Similarly reconstructed\, an array of visual styles will be on displa y including a contribution from The Human Structure Series (2011) by Derrick Adams\, an example of Ebony Patterson's Species Series (201 1)\, a new\, large-scale drawing by Houston-based artist Robert Pruitt\, a quiet and ambiguous figurative painting by Los Angeles-based Noah Davis\, n ew work by Kambui Olujimi\, and a virtual\, Hieronymus Bosch-esque video ta bleau titled Country Ball\, 1989-2012\, by Jacolby Satterwhite that is buil t from memory rather than morality.
