Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist is the first retrospective of the American artist’s paintings in two decades. This 40-year survey includes works from each period of Archibald John Motley Jr.’s (1891—1981) career. Motley’s scenes of life in the African-American community, often in his hometown of Chicago, depict a parallel universe of labor and leisure and are infused with the rhythms and colors of jazz. His portraits are voyeuristic examinations of race, gender and sexuality. Also included in the exhibition are his noteworthy canvases of Jazz Age Paris and 1950s Mexico, as well as works that address slavery and racial stereotypes. For information: (817) 738-1933 or www.cartermuseum.org/exhibitions
