UW-Madison Art Dept. | Fall 2021 Visiting Artist Colloquium: Aaron S. Coleman

October 13, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Aaron S. Coleman is a mixed media artist and printmaker creating works focused on political and social issues. He combines imagery from comic books and stained glass windows to raise questions concerning misconstrued belief systems and twisted moral values in our society. Aaron’s background in hip-hop culture and street art remains as a major influence in his fine art practices.
In his new bodies of work, Coleman dives into stories of personal history and global sociopolitical events, inspired by ongoing efforts to understand and his life as a biracial person and the impact of settler colonialism both past and present. Separated by the perceived gap between personal experience and global history and brought back together by the threads of generational trauma, his works point to the origins and ongoing impact of settler colonialism and white supremacy.
