Featured Story

For the past few years, Preston Wadley has been thinking about those people who visit a museum or gallery and spend—at most—15 seconds looking at a work of art. How could he keep them longer, he wondered. How could he change their views? His answer to that question is now on display at the Bellevue Arts Museum in an exhibition titled “Abstract Truth.”

Abstract Truth features art books and photographs by Preston Wadley, focusing on the themes of race, identity, history, and the history of photography. The work is evidence of change, of historical revision and reflection on the connection to what has already been and an ever-evolving present. Wadley encourages viewers to engage with his work on more than just a visual level. Each book tells a story, and he wants you to listen.
