VCUarts and the Anderson are pleased to present An Incessant Modulation, an installation by VCUarts Painting + Printmaking alumni Bryan Castro (MFA, 2020). For An Incessant Modulation Castro draws on personal experiences of stigma to examine the structural and social discrimination surrounding stuttering. The unique repetitions and rhythms of stuttering, for which it is often maligned as a ‘dysfluency’ in spoken language, are materialized in Castro’s paintings as an exquisite visual poetry – one capable of leveraging a powerful counter-critique at the bodies of clinical literature and societal conventions—referenced and cited throughout these works—that have long defined stuttering as deficiency.
Castro will be on site at The Anderson to welcome visitors to his exhibition 12–6pm, Thursday, January 28th.
An Incessant Modulation is on view January 26–February 5th at the Anderson, Gallery F.
