Knockdown Center is pleased to present TRAVELER, a mural by Carl E. Hazlewood, as a part of our Fifty Two Ft series of long-term commissions of wall-based artworks in Knockdown Center’s East Corridor.

About

The mural’s title, TRAVELER, references the way viewers must physically move in order to grasp such a large work in a circumscribed space: essentially a long corridor at Knockdown’s entrance. The title also alludes to the artist’s shifting position, described by Hazelwood as not only that of an immigrant but also as black, poor, older – a boundary-crosser of sorts within a category of persons increasingly problematized (and sometimes demonized) in recent political machinations. While not explicitly a sociopolitical artist, Hazelwood manipulates abstract form and space in an effort to illuminate his personal vision, offering the possibility of poetic revelation.
