Floyd-Pruitt will talk about his exhibition Retina Records: Self-portraits of a time traveler, currently showing at MOWA | DTN.

Retinal recordings finds Anwar Floyd-Pruitt inventing a new visual language capable of evoking the experience of time travel. Spray-painted works in dense layers result in a kaleidoscopic installation that also draws inspiration from the aesthetic sensibilities of the 1990s as well as an imagined Afro-futuristic future. Floyd-Pruitt’s abstract faces unite features taken from family photos and launch viewers into a psychologically and visually fascinating space.

Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to get to know the artist and his work! Guests can preview the artwork on the free Saint Kate Art Tour app prior to the event.

We will be serving a complimentary specialty cocktail during the event, and guests are encouraged to have a drink at the bar afterwards.
