David McGee, a Houston painter, has spent the last several years exploring his role as a black, male artist.  He combines racial stereotypes and legendary iconography from art history to comment on contemporary culture and his place within it.  The exhibition includes 12 large paintings and a series of works on paper—Juba to Jive, fifty works that form an African-American visual lexicon. The catalogue includes an essay by Lynn M Herbert and documentation on the artist’s career.
