Charlotte Street Foundation’s Paragraph gallery presents The Last Descendants, a solo exhibition of an ambitious new body of work by Kansas City/Lawrence-based artist Judith G. Levy. The show features three faux documentary videos in which the living “descendants” of Huckleberry Finn, Hansel and Gretel, and The Lone Ranger are interviewed.

The Lone Ranger: The Last Descendants from Judith G. Levy on Vimeo.

Each video is accompanied by a large-scale, meticulously drawn, extensively researched, multi-generational “family tree” exploring the complex history of each family with reference to far-ranging events and influences.
