Chris Ofili : Titled Dangerous Liaisons, the exhibition references the central imagery in René Magritte's eponymous painting from 1935. Ofili also takes as his inspiration Shakespeare's Othello, as well as the figure of Calypso, from Homer's Odyssey. The artist depicts these literary and art historical references in kaleidoscopic visual compositions that balance lush color palettes with strong graphic lines, patterns, and forms. Opening Reception: Wed, May 1, 6-8pm.
