William Villalongo is a Brooklyn-based artist whose figures oscilate between magic and the factualness of being in a body, desire and discord. Visibility and invisibility become metaphors for current existential concerns of race and representation. His works have been exhibited at the Studio Museum in Harlem; El Museo del Barrio; PS1 MoMA, amongst others, and are in the collection of The Whitney Museum of Art; PAFA; Baltimore Museum of Art and Rose Art Museum. Curatorial projects are an extension of his art practice, and include the critically acclaimed “American Beauty” at Susan Inglett Gallery and “Black Pulp!,” which toured nationally.
