Joe Ray: I Can Hear The Scream
Joe Ray: I Can Hear The Scream is a historical solo exhibition of painting, sculpture, and photographs by the Los Angeles-based artist.
In Ray’s second solo exhibition at Diane Rosenstein Gallery, following a 2017 survey of his work, Ray presents a body of work which reflects directly on a particular traumatic cultural moment in the history of Los Angeles, the horrific assault of Rodney King, the acquittal of the police officers guilty of the beating, and the protests and civil unrest that followed in the 1992 L.A. Riots. Most of the suite of paintings, sculptures, and photographs on view were completed in 1993, and a number of the works were shown originally in 2014’s Prospect.3: Notes for Now, curated by Franklin Sirmans.
