Museum of Modern Art
60 captioned paintings, plain and simple clearly chronicle the movement of African Americans North to South. What a powerful reminder of the passion and clarity to be found in use of shape and color. I knew the artist, but not this work as a series. I had missed out. The 60 paintings circling a room, make the narrative clear, you travel time. The strongly colored graphic series is mated with music and writing infused with the same disappointments, frustration and pain, a capsule portrait of a stretch of time.
You feel, I felt.
