A new exhibition, "Nari Ward: Home of the Brave" features works and installations by the Jamaican-born artist that examine concepts of immigration and belonging in the United States. "Nari Ward: Home of the Brave" turns a critical lens on the values espoused in iconic American symbols, including the American flag and the Statue of Liberty. The individual works invite viewers to question how concepts of democracy, liberty, and belonging are experienced by immigrants, Black people, and other historically under-represented communities. Ward was born in Jamaica and immigrated to the United States with his family at the age of 12; he earned his BA at Hunter College and his MFA at Brooklyn College. He received a National Endowment for the Arts grant in 1994, and has been an active and frequent exhibitor in group and solo exhibitions since 1995, when his work was included in both the Venice Biennale and the Whitney Biennial. Ward received the Vilcek Prize in Fine Arts in 2017 for his body of found-object assemblage artwork that invites both public discourse and intimate dialogue on topics including race, poverty, and Black and Caribbean diasporic identities.
