Current Art Shows Feature Black Art

How does one define black art? Is it art that portrays black people, or art made by black people to manifest their experience? Scrutiny, or self-expression? A handful of current art shows take varying approaches to the question. At the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, three shows tackle the aesthetics of blackness in wildly different ways. The Black Figure in the European Imaginary collects 19th-century European depictions of African men and women. It’s a room full of objectively beautiful work that is, nevertheless, squeam-inducing in its fetishization of the “exotic other.” AfroFantastic, on the other hand, condenses modern African-American narratives into a protected utopia in which imagination can sweep away all limits. And Reframing the Picture, Reclaiming the Past bridges the …

Snap! Orlando

On Friday, Snap! Orlando launches its annual photography festival and this year’s edition, titled YOU ARE HERE, is an eyeful. Instead of being confined to one primary location for a weekend, Snap is spreading itself across the city and the calendar: Snap events happen every day in May, in 24 different locations in Orlando, Winter Park, Tampa, Daytona and Melbourne. In its previous incarnations, the Snap festival has been neither this sprawling nor this focused. Whereas earlier editions were content to show stunning photography from around the world, this year Snap’s hallmark is social commentary – even, in some cases, social advocacy. Some examples? Zun Lee’s “Father Figure” explores lesser-seen facets of Black fatherhood. In “7 Days of Garbage,” Gregg …
