BEST POWERFULLY ENGAGING EXHIBITION: Black Pulp!

BEST POWERFULLY ENGAGING EXHIBITION

Approaching black identity in a different format, Black Pulp! — curated by William Villalongo and Mark Thomas Gibson — dove into black perspectives in historical printed media, which influenced and were in conversation with the contemporary works in the exhibition. Black artists have challenged the oppression of a dark and painful American past with satire or humor, making themselves the shining heroes in their narratives. This was easily one of the highlights of 2017 exhibitions worth several visits. —Caitlin Albritton
