One more post because this show was really special. Marshall’s work covers everything from black romance to gun violence. The most moving piece for me was “Heirlooms and Accessories” — based on a famous journalistic photograph from 1930 that shows a white crowd watching the lynching of two black men in Marion, Indiana. I’m still thinking about it; and the different ‘heirlooms’ that we have been given and what we will hopefully pass on – more tolerance and progress than past generations I hope. What will we be accessories to? I hope you get a chance to check out “Heirlooms and Accessories” – I think it is part of the permanent collection at The Studio Museum in Harlem. #kerryjamesmarshall #art #life #thefuture #thepast #grief #history #humanexperience #nyc
