Titus Kaphar deals with the question of how history is created and represented in his works, which include paintings, sculptures, and pieces done on paper, painted with tar. Kaphar doesn't hold back in his interaction with his art, cutting, slicing, and re-ordering it in order to present compelling ideas. His sculptures, meanwhile, are cast in wax and bronze, and question role of classical language in the shaping of historical narrative. This is his first solo show in New York.
