Kendall Carter addresses relevant themes of race and identity in a new body of work shown at Edward Cella Art & Architecture in an exhibition titled “Marvel.” Perhaps one of the most powerful works is “Cranes for Solange,” where Carter displays white denim jeans hanging on hooks that are locked. Above the jeans is a bathroom sign that states “Rest Rooms,” “White” and “Colored.” This site specific installation harks back to a dark time in history whilst simultaneously illustrating the problems that still exist.
