Episode: Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis

The Things That Haunt Me Still 

This Saturday on Live Culture offers a conversation with artist Felandus Thames and curator David Borawski about the exhibit The Things That Haunt Me Still  up now at Real Art Ways in Hartford. The show, which runs until May 30, 2021, features Thames' assemblages which utilize found objects and non-traditional materials like hair beads and barrettes, to explore gender and race. Often asking more questions than offering answers, Thames’ playful use of materials and text utilizes humor as an entry point to exploring social and cultural issues.

Felandus Thames is a conceptual artist living and practicing in the greater New York area. Born in Mississippi, Thames attended the graduate program in Painting and Printmaking at Yale University where he received his MFA in 2010. He has been included in exhibitions at the Kravets Wehby Gallery, Tilton Gallery, Heather James Gallery, Charles H. Wright Museum, African American Museum of Philadelphia, Mississippi Museum of Art, Yale University, Wesleyan University, Columbia University, Art Hamptons, Art LA, The Texas Contemporary, and Miami Basel.

David Borawski is an artist and curator whose own work involves text and found object assemblages. His affinity with Thames' work has resulted in a thoughtfully presented exhibition in one of Connecticut's most innovative and dynamic  exhibition venues.
