Fletcher Williams

May 13, 2019 - June 14, 2019


Fletcher Williams III (b. 1987) is a Charleston-based interdisciplinary artist whose theoretical and conceptual art making practice is rooted in a southern vernacular. Williams studied drawing, painting, print making, graphic design, and sculpture at The Cooper Union, where he received a BFA in 2010 and worked for several years thereafter as a freelance graphic designer. While the core of Williams’ practice focused multimedia object making, a significant portion of his education was dedicated to studying ritual theory through the lenses of anthropology and sociology. These concepts play an important role in his later works. In 2013, Williams returned to Charleston and began creating multimedia objects and installations that explore historical and contemporary narratives of culture and utility that are unique to the Lowcountry.
