Billy Morrison is proud to premiere his new body of work, HUMANITY, at a two-night-only pop up exhibition in West Hollywood, on view during the second weekend of November. A reflection on the current state of the world, and a hopeful look at the upcoming decade, HUMANITY is Morrison’s most personal body of work to date. The exhibition will go on view for VIPs on Friday, November 8th, from 7pm to 10pm, and be open to the public on Saturday, November 9, from 5pm to 10pm.
“This is an overarching look at humanity right now, as I see it,” explains Morrison. “All definitely inspired by what’s been happening in my life since the start of 2019, but in many ways it’s about this entire decade, which is coming to its conclusion in just a few months. In spite of everything happening in the world, I feel like things are becoming more positive, and this work is a reflection of that.”
Comprised of 21 paintings on canvas, with mediums that span oils, acrylics and spray-paint, the work in HUMANITY is a look at Billy’s life over the past year, with meditations on self-care and health, religion, what rock n roll means, and protest against the growing threats of racism and right wing fascism.
