North Carolina artist Juan Logan presents new and recent work in his first solo show at the Weatherspoon Art Museum. The exhibition includes Sugar House (2010), a large-scale, 6 x 16 ft. work that uses puzzle pieces and imagery such as water mills and prize rings to critique the banking and health care industries. Also included are a number of mixed media collages and works on paper. Through this new body of work, Logan examines the power struggles at play in the financial practices of both the public and commercial spheres, and their effects upon the American people. 

Juan Logan (b. 1946, Nashville, TN) attended Clark College, Atlanta, and Howard University, Washington, D.C. He received his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore in 1998. His work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions across the country, including the Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston; the Baltimore Museum of Art; the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. His work is included in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte; the Museum of African American Art, Los Angeles; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro. Logan was Professor of Studio Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 2001-2012.

 

The exhibition is organized by Xandra Eden, Curator of Exhibitions and accompanied by a brochure made possible through the support of the North Carolina Arts Fund.
