Deborah Roberts: Little man, little man Opening
September 15, 2020
Little man, little man, by Deborah Roberts, features collaged images of a young Black boy in various gestures of action and celebration, printed onto weather-resistant vinyl and installed as an outdoor public artwork. Roberts assembles her unique images from fragments of found materials—such as photographs, literature, magazines, and the Internet—combined with hand-painted details, rendering compositions that condemn the perils of American racism on the most vulnerable members of our population while envisioning hopeful futures.
Representing both Roberts’s and The Contemporary Austin’s first outdoor mural, this work is part of the artist’s exhibition, I’m, on view January 23 through August 15, 2021.
