Living Room

In his first solo show, artist Jamaal Barber presents a black so true it’s bright

“In a carefully curated sequence of woodcuts and screenprints, Barber attempts to break open those “hegemonic modes of seeing” that bell hooks describes by heeding the dissonance between race and color, between looking at and being seen.” -from my ArtsATL review of Jamaal Barber’s first solo show, Bright Black

Living Room

History is Active

“Confederate monuments are never about forgetting or correcting a violent past; they are about upholding a culture that is toxic and dominant.” –from “Allowing Racist Symbols to Remain Standing Shows What We Are Unwilling to Change in Society,” an op-ed of mine published this week on Truthout.
