Deborah Roberts: I'm
The Contemporary, Austin, Texas, USA
'I'm' at The Contemporary, Austin is the first institutional solo exhibition in Texas by Austin-based artist Deborah Roberts. The show comprises a selection of new collages and paintings, as well as two new interactive sound, text, and video sculptures. To coincide with the exhibition, the artist has also created a new figurative mural on the exterior of the Jones Center building. This mural is displayed alongside Jim Hodges' 'Liberty and Justice for All (A Work in Progress)', 2014, which consists of “With Liberty and Justice for All” spelled out in seven-foot-tall letters.
This exhibition is curated by Heather Pesanti, Chief Curator & Director of Curatorial Affairs.
