It’s a small show, but one that packs a punch. Amy Sherald’s collection of five new paintings manage to fill the airy, cathedral-like main space at Hauser and Wirth, Los Angeles with a quiescent power. The exhibition is titled “The Great American Fact.” Sherald’s work, mostly portraits, render scenes of contemporary Black American life in simplified realism. Her subjects are depicted in everyday settings with exquisite, dignified vibrancy. In 2017, Sherald and artist Kehinde Wiley were selected to paint the official National Gallery portraits of Michelle and President Barack Obama respectively.
