Art 84 Artists

Art 84 hosts individual artists and collectives of various styles and media along with live Dance + Music + Art. Here are some of the artists that have been hosted by Art 84.

Cornelius Carter | Work in Progress


Virtual Exhibit Opens August 28 – December 31, 2020
In Person Exhibit: Date &  Location TBA

Art 84 and Fisterra Projects announce a new exhibit by Austin artist Cornelius Carter entitled Work in Progress. The exhibit captures the struggle and glory of the African-American experience along with the artist’s faith in the American dream of equality and opportunity for all. We share that faith, and we support all the people who are working so hard today to make the dream a reality.

Taking inspiration from multiple traditions, Cornelius weaves together imagery from history, mythology, childhood, and life experience to create paintings that are thought-provoking, captivating, and beautiful. He often incorporates historical elements and classical styling, but from his own cultural perspective. People and their relationships are a central theme in his work.
