Join us within Reckoning and Resilience: North Carolina Art Now for a talk by Charles Edward Williams, whose work is on view.

From the artist’s bio: Charles Edward Williams is a contemporary visual artist from Georgetown, SC. Creating compelling imagery in oils, video/film, and sound installations, Williams’s work investigates current, historical cultural events related to racism, and to suggestive stereotypes formed within individuals. His works define self–representation of human emotive responses that lie within cultural identity, and reveal tension to expose the complexities within our sociopolitical environments. Through his visions, we are encouraged to engage in self-examination, question false boundaries that separate us, and view the inner connectedness of our common existence.

Williams has had solo exhibitions at Polk Museum of Art, Gibbes Museum of Art, Residency Art, Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, SECCA, Weber State University, Morton Fine Art, Scope Art Fair / Art Basel among others. His work has been included in group exhibitions throughout the US and Europe. Williams holds a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA, and an MFA from the University of North Carolina – Greensboro.

We strongly encourage all individuals to be fully vaccinated before visiting the Nasher. The museum will adhere to all university, local and state regulations, which are subject to change on short notice depending on public health conditions. Specific health and safety information will be updated on this page.

Reservations are required for dining in the Nasher Museum Café.
