Meat, Chapter 3: The Maggots Will Find You, April 21 – May 12, 2015

This exhibition followed Price’s Meat series, inspired by a violent incident in Nicaragua in 1985 when Price was shot with a high-powered rifle in his left abdomen. This traumatic experience symbolically killed the trauma of Price’s childhood. The ghosts of his traumatic childhood, the death of his mother and sister in the late 90s, and the remnants of his gunshot wound are recurring examinations in Luther’s body and his body of work. This exhibition featured a brand-new series of handmade 35mm slides, the second ever exhibition of Price’s little-seen sculpture work from the mid-to-late 1980s, and a series of 40 photographs from the late 80s by photographer Russell Scholl.  A mini-retrospective of Luther Price’s moving-image works accompanied the Usdan Exhibition.  Read more about the exhibition here.
