theserranopost A great honor to welcome our friend, Chicago Artist #TheasterGates to the U.S. Embassy Madrid who enthusiastically spoke at the #ReinaSofia and @mataderomadrid with Spanish art students about facing and overcoming challenges, following dreams and finding pride, dignity and beauty in all things. This piece titled (Time with Tar and Horizontality, 2013) is composed of wood, roofing paper, rubber, metal and tar materials. In this work he honors his fathers trade as a roofer by finding beauty using working class materials. @studiomuseum @thelmagolden #spain #madrid - AMB & @michaelsmithinc 2d

theserranopost American artist #TheasterGates inspires Spanish students with stories of his trade, the challenges he overcame and the story he is driven to tell thru his art. He shares how using and discovering the beauty in working class materials like tar and asphalt to create his art, is to honor the work of his father, a roofer in Chicago. @mataderomadrid #artinembassies #madrid @statedept 2w

theagoraculture #Firsts - In our effort to expose more children to art, we had the pleasure of taking a few children to @studiomuseum this weekend. There were a lot of questions and introspection. The piece by Theaster Gates was powerful, as one young girl turned around and declared 'I am beautiful, too!' after watching the video hearing a woman repeat over and over the same. And the boys in the group Really liked the Hank Willis Thomas piece, "Black is Beautiful"... #TheasterGates

  •   jungle_fever_dream ️Lucky day 13 of #blackhistorymonth is for #theastergates!!! He is easily the most inspirational artist. This bank was sold to him by the city of Chicago for $1 and now functions as an arts library and is free to the community. He's created housing projects and residencies for black artists and is the recent recipient of the artes mundi prize of £40 000, which he split with all of the artist in 'competition' for the prize. He is straight inspo, I'll never get over him!!!2w
