Bruce Bennett: Love II

Bruce Bennett: Love II

Presented by Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery at Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery

Bruce Bennett (Jersey City, NJ) explore issues of gender, sexuality, race, and socioeconomic status in large-scale black and white photographs. Love II is a visual representation of Black Love from the perspective of the artist and his partner captured in intimate and informal self-portraits within their home environment. Employing the same method as a selfie, Bennett utilizes a mirror to capture each image through a reflection revealing a sense of intimacy with each moment.

Bruce Bennett is a lens-based artist originally from Chicago’s Southside. Bennett holds a BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati (2018). His images have been published by Vanity Fair and Vice, and were included in the 2016 book All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party. Bennett was previously featured at the Weston in the group exhibition Beacon, curated by C.M. Turner, in 2020.
