Nari Ward, "We the People" 2011. Made entirely from shoelaces of all different colors, styles, and sizes, Ward asks us to think about the "People" implied by the authors of the Constitution, and the "People" it represents today. .

You might have a cool job if you can walk into a museum and see work by 4 amazing artists who you've had the opportunity to know personally: Ebony G. Patterson, Nari Ward, Theaster Gates, Carrie Mae Weems. #ebonygpatterson #nariward #theastergates #carriemaeweems #rauschenbergresidency #bestjobever
Smiles that speak volumes: @nariward’s “Canned Smiles,” 2015, tin cans, labels, mirrored stainless-steel disks, smiles 😼#ObjectsLikeUs @thealdrich #NariWard

Thanks to #EricStraus #LaurenBierly @archofmemory & #ElizaEvans @elizaevans777 for making my morning a memorable pleasure @art_omi here featuring this winning surrealist #bomarzo style #giant-goat-riding-toy by #nariward entitled: 'scapgoat' and a poetic and subtly layered installation by #richardnonas entitled: 'smoke'.
These photos don’t do this artwork justice... it is incredible. Every piece added with intention behind it. #boston #modernart #nariward

We were proud to join @creativetimenyc for the ambitious #PledgesOfAllegiance. The project began on #flagday of 2017 with a call out to fellow cultural institutions across the country to unite around the issues that artists care about: immigration, racial justice, civil rights, environmental resilience, and peace. Over the last 13 months, 201 flags by 16 artists flew with 34 partners across 20 states, bringing together arts organizations, universities, and cities in a nationwide act of solidarity.

Thanks to artists @alexdacorte @jeremydeller #latoyarubyfrazier #annhamilton @robert_longo_studio #josephinemeckseper @vikmuniz @jaysonmusson @ahmet__ogut @yokoonoofficial @trevorpaglen @_pedro_reyes_ #rirkrittiravanija and @nariward, whose flags were displayed at MOCAD.

We raised our flags with institutions across the US, including @21chotels @atlantacontemporary @bluestarart @brooklynmuseum @brucemuseum @cacollegeofarts @ferroviastudios @hfjmuseum @brownu @kmacmuseum @kempermuseum @lightcitybmore @massmoca @mocajax @paperchasepress @prattinstitute @queensmuseum @risdmuseum @thealdrich @zimmerliartmuseum @theunionomaha and others.

Intense and invigorating, yet somehow soothing, exhibition in “Worlds Otherwise Hidden.” Recommended.

Dependence on self love, greatness, positive vibes and black smiles...

Swipe left to @nariward Nari Ward’s Canned Smiles.
Referencing Piero Manzoni’s “Artist Shit” project, Nari Ward enclosed his daughter, son and own smiles, hence “canning” the cliche of the happy Jamaican and African American minstrel character. The label “Made in Jamaica/Made in America” refers to the artist’s double identity and to the cultural process of classification of people according to their origin. His daughter and son smiled into the “Black Smiles” cans while he smiled into the “Jamaican Smiles” cans. A seemingly absurd gesture underscores the sometimes unreasonable regard we have towards categorizing racial identity.

Meet the G.O.A.T.s! 🐐
@decordovaspandm has installed three sculptures by acclaimed artist #NariWard, which are now on view at their Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA. These concrete casts of goat-shaped lawn ornaments are adorned with a variety of urban debris 🔌, commenting on the irony of using human-made materials to improve the natural landscape. They were originally part of a major outdoor exhibition of his work at @socratespark in #NewYork.

Happy #4thofJuly! In "We the People," Nari Ward used colorful shoelaces to write out the three most recognizable words of the United States Constitution—those which begin the Preamble. These words not only represent grand ideals written by the founding fathers of the United States hundreds of years ago, but also speak to concerns of Americans today. Through the use of a common item, the artist has woven “we the people” into our contemporary lives. In the spirit of the work, we invited community members to help install “We the People” in our gallery. On our blog, Preparator Kevin Haynie talks more about the community installation; link in our bio. #WethePeople #NariWard

Happy Independence Day from the Blue Medium team! July 4th is a day for beach getaways and summery celebration, but also for recognizing the importance of social engagement and the power of our collective voice. Nari Ward's piece "We the People," created in partnership with @fabricworkshop, is a colorful reminder to do just that. You can also see a new @nariward installation this summer at @openspaceskc. Happy 4th!

WE THE PEOPLE of all colors, sizes, dimensions, races, creeds, genders, ages, religions, backgrounds, lineages, preferences and opinions. That’s what this country was built on, in order to “build a more perfect UNION” Respect, care, uplifting, embracing others and upholding the basic human rights all of all.
“We the People” by Nari Ward made of the shoelaces that bind the common sole or soul, if you will, poetically of varying colors, patterns and sizes. #4thofjuly #humanity #rememberwhatitmeans #freedomandrespectforall #makeroomatthetable #artistic #statements #textileart #nariward #wethepeople #foundationofamerica

Today we celebrate #Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the US. #NariWard's 'Breathing Panels' reference the #UndergroundRailroad, specifically the artist's visit to the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia. Do you see the holes? Perforations cut into the wall #sculptures reference the breathing holes found in the floorboards of churches that sheltered escaped slaves.

Repost of #NariWard ‘s artwork from @lehmannmaupin for #juneteenth #reperations now.
Today is #Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, the anniversary of the 1865 announcement of the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. In #NariWard's installation 'Hanging study', $1 bills are used to spell “Reparations” across panels propped against a wall, with a future hanging place designated in outlines. The paintings' ‘tabling,' in lieu of action, is a direct reference to the longstanding debate regarding atonement for America’s history of slavery and racial subjugation.
