On November 20, The Untitled Space presented “Old Talks with New Icons,” a solo exhibition of works by artist Philip A. Robinson Jr. on display through December 17, 2021. “Old Talks with New Icons,” is a collection of life-sized figurative wood mixed media wall sculptures as well as a series of hand-cut works on paper by the award-winning multi-media sculptor and conceptual artist. Through a thoughtful selection of materials and the science of dendrochronology – as a protocol for historic markers for environmental changes through time – Robinson’s work accentuates aesthetic and historic patterns between self and the world, with socio-political undertones. 

Guests sipped champagne and while enjoying the exhibit curated by Untitled’s founder Indira Cesarine. A soundtrack hand-picked by Robinson played in the background featuring the tracks that inspired the titles of artworks. Philip went as far as disclosing that music was another important element of inspiration for the works as well as, “TV, Print, Film, History Books, social media, Educational Institutions…Life experiences.” The exhibition also included a behind-the-scenes video of Philip while making his artwork that allowed people to view his works from a more personal perspective.
