Robert Freeman: America's Past-time

Robert Freeman: America's Past-time

Presented by Childs Gallery at Childs Gallery

Robert Freeman’s new exhibition America’s Past-time presents a marked departure for the acclaimed artist. Best known for his exuberant figurative images celebrating the beauty and elegance of the Black middle class, paintings from Freeman’s latest series delve into the profound racial divides within our country. Greatly disturbed by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black Americans, Freeman turned to his art as an expression of anger, outrage, and sadness. The resulting works make up America’s Past-time, wherein adults play traditional children’s games such as Capture the Flag and Blind Man’s Bluff, to terrifying and often deadly ends.
