Following the murder of George Floyd by police officers, demonstrations across the U.S. and beyond ignite against racism and police brutality, at times met with less than magnanimous authority.
Born in 1957, Andrew Moore lives and works in New York City. His work has been featured in solo and group museum exhibitions at the National Gallery of Art, the Akron Art Museum, the Queens Museum of Art, Colby College Museum of Art, and the National Building Museum, Washington D.C.

In 2019, Damiani will release Blue Alabama, a monograph on Moore’s work in the American South.
