Winfred Rembert, 1945-2021, on view at Fort Gansevoort in New York City is a brutal but necessary show spread over three floors, tracing the chronology of Rembert’s life. The exhibit coincides with the publication of his memoir, Chasing Me To My Grave: An Artist’s Memoir Of The Jim Crow South, written with Erin I. Kelly, from which the wall text and captions are largely taken, ensuring that his voice and artistic vision is centered.
