Darryl Lauster: Testament

On view through May 2023
Museum Grounds

North Texas–based artist Darryl Lauster’s Testament (2018–20) will inaugurate a series of outdoor creative projects implemented by the Carter. Through the examination of America’s past and present, Lauster’s bronze obelisk calls for the viewer to be a critical reader of information and to look at the function of text in different contexts. Testament combines pop culture references with quotes from primarily U.S. foundational documents bringing to question what we know about our nation’s history and promises.
