Artist Vincent Valdez is recognized for his monumental portrayal of the contemporary figure. ​His drawn and painted subjects reveal narratives of struggles within the margins of American history. He aims to help us remember, stating, “My aim is to incite public remembrance and to impede distorted realities that I witness, like the social amnesia that surrounds me.”

In conversation with “Philip Guston Now” guest curator Terence Washington, Valdez describes Guston’s influence and speaks as Guston’s peer among artists working to bear witness to the complexities of American life.​
