“Fever Within” is the first comprehensive retrospective for Ronald Lockett (American, 1965-1998), who was largely unrecognized during his lifetime, but who had by the time of his death at age 32 produced an estimated 400 artworks that embody a stunning evolution of artistic practice. Raised in Bessemer, Ala., Lockett challenged the boundaries between self-taught and mainstream contemporary American artists, and his work addressed themes of struggle, survival and injustice in contexts that ranged from the autobiographical to the national. Through more than 50 works on view, the exhibition explores the full range of Lockett’s innovative and evocative paintings, sculptures and assemblages, offering in-depth insight into his process and the creative impulses that propelled him.
