Justin LeBlanc: Superiority Complex

West Hall

On view June 1 - August 20, 2023

AMSET will present Justin LeBlanc: Superiority Complex in the museum’s West Hall through August 20, 2023. Justin LeBlanc is an alumnus of Lamar University. He has exhibited his work throughout Texas, as well as in Colorado and Alabama.
Rendered as large, monochromatic works on canvas, LeBlanc’s black paintings boldly and unapologetically acknowledge contemporary and historical challenges related to colonialism, judicial abuse, and immigration. His works on paper stand as testaments to lives lost due to gun violence.

AMSET is an accredited museum with the American Alliance of Museums.
