Here’s an excerpt from the official Press Release :
“ALL DAT GLITTERS AIN’T GOALS”
September 6th – October 6th, 2012
Thursday, September 6th, 2012 (6-8pm)
Lyons Wier Gallery
542 West 24th St., New York, NY 10011
Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat, 11am-6pm
Lyons Wier Gallery is honored to present All Dat Glitters Ain’t Goals, our fourth solo exhibition featuring Fahamu Pecou.
Fahamu Pecou expands upon his 2011 exhibition in Paris, HARD 2 DEATH, by utilizing his familiar trope of self-portraiture to challenge and dissect society’s representation of black masculinity in popular culture today. The title, All Dat Glitters Ain’t Goals, is an obvious play on the quote from William Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, “All that glitters is not gold.” As with all of Pecou’s exhibitions, the artist’s masterful word play is the root of his exhibition.
