Dalton Gata: The Way We’ll Be

Artist Dalton Gata explores the themes and inspirations behind his first solo museum presentation “The Way We’ll Be.”

This exhibition of newly commissioned work is focused on issues of “becoming,” and on the liberation found through pride, dignity, and joy. The artist often uses portraiture to reimagine conventions of identity, gender, and beauty and creates symbolic still lives and landscapes rich with cross-cultural references. These latest works see the artist dramatically expanding his visual language, depicting figures rapt with the potential for transformation.
