An Exhibition and Lecture by Artist Robert Williams

Snippet from a Robert Williams pieceArtist, Robert Williams presents “Underground Art” on, Tuesday, November 13, at 5:00 p.m. in LSU Union Theatre.

Robert Williams, founder of Juxtapoz Magazine, is one of the most influential American artists alive. From the 1970s and 1980s, Williams metamorphosed from being the author of scandal-prone underground comics to a fine artist with an international cult following. He is best known as a champion of lowbrow art (a term he coined). He has made a career tipping the edge of contemporary art, and his influence on cutting-edge visual culture is undeniable.

Williams’ work will be featured in the LSU Union Art Gallery Poison for the Impressionable (Conceptual Realism): A Robert William Documentary Exhibition. The exhibition will be on view from November 11- December 16, 2012. For more information, visit:
