FLINT, MICH.- The Flint Institute of Arts Museum + Art School presents a powerful new exhibition that challenges the status quo, featuring the work of artist and Detroit-native Mario Moore - Revolutionary Times. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, April 14th in the FIA's Hodge and Temporary Exhibition galleries.

"The FIA is excited to have Detroit artist Mario Moore's artwork on display in the museum," exclaims Rachael Holstege, FIA Associate Curator. "Not only does his work evoke important questions about history and its relation to our contemporary culture and politics but also directly ties to Michigan and its role in the Fur Trade, Underground Railroad, and the Civil War."

Revolutionary Times draws from three bodies of work by Moore; presenting paintings, silverpoint drawings, and works on paper that focus on American history and current connections to the past. The series are tied together by the hard work, labor, liberation and ingenuity of Black citizens that have revolutionized those time periods in comparison to contemporary problems the United States faces as a nation.

Mario Moore, a Detroit native, received a BFA from the College for Creative Studies, Detroit, MI in 2009 and an MFA in Painting from the Yale School of Art, New Haven, CT in 2013. Moore’s paintings focus on the personal, social and political implications of our segregated society. Presenting stories of his own life and those of friends and family, Moore weaves in multiple references to history, art, politics and literature to complete his narrative. He is a recent Kresge Arts Fellow (2023) awarded through the Kresge Foundation and a recipient of the prestigious Princeton Hodder Fellowship (2018-2019) through Princeton University. He also has been awarded residencies at Duke University, Josef and Annie Albers Foundation, Fountainhead, and Knox College. Moore’s work is in the permanent collections of but not limited to the Detroit Institute of Arts, Princeton University Art Museum, The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Mott-Warsh Collection, Louisiana State University Museum of Art, California African American Museum, Flint Institute of Art and The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center.

Moore’s work has been widely exhibited, including at The Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit, MI; The Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University, NJ; the Smart Museum of Art, Chicago, IL; Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, MI; David Klein Gallery, Detroit, MI; Jeffrey Deitch Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Arthur Roger Gallery, New Orleans, LA; The Cleveland Museum of Art, Colby College Museum of Art and is currently in the Smithsonian Sites Exhibition (traveling), Men of Change. His most recent major exhibitions Mario Moore / Enshrined: Presence & Preservation, the largest survey of Moore’s work to date, opened at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Detroit in June 2021 and at the California African American Museum (CAAM) in March 2022, also his first solo exhibition on the West Coast. Mario Moore currently works & lives in Detroit, MI.
