Lamar Robillard by Icaro Abril 07, 2024 0 Portefólios

Lamar Robillard (b. 1991, New York) is a conceptual artist, photographer and educator working primarily with visual familiarity and found objects. Lamar’s practice is an act of resistance that takes a multidisciplinary approach to examining visibility, nonconformity and spirituality as it relates to identity, Black material culture and the self-coined “Unfavored American” experience. Inspired by various forms of literature, media, representation and history, he aims to insert his theory of second class citizenship into the canon through a lifelong exploration of the Unfavoured American experience while simultaneously providing authentic representation for Blackness with the absence of the Black body politic. Lamar’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at Art Port Kingston, Bed-Stuy Art House, HAUSEN, Art Helix Gallery, Swivel Gallery, Efa Project space, the Adam Clayton Powell Jr state building, Collision Gallery, and Chasama galleries.
