THESE COLORS: The Secret Paintings of General Norman Schwarzkopf
Hours: Opening: Tuesday 5/3 [ 5:00 - 8:00pm ]
Open Hours: Wednesday 5/4 [12:00 - 5:00pm]
After an unreal discovery in the CIA’s Modernist Art Collection, I try to recount the still secret paintings of General Norman Schwarzkopf. Using accessible sources, from unpunished war crime accusations and glowing obituaries, to creative biographies and hobbyist fact sheets, I connect the General’s works to the near century of U.S. war and empire that informed them. I hope to examine how a diffuse and mediated, leaked and recounted, information landscape, and practices informed by it, seek to escape, yet ultimately express, U.S. imperial power.
