TCA 2023 Art Sightings: Part 2

TCA 2023 Art Sightings: Part 2

(2 of 3 Parts) Highlights of what I saw in 2023. From art galleries, artist studio visits and major art fairs. It’s the work of primarily Black artists and other artists of color. From Kingston, Jamaica, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Newark, New Jersey, to Miami, Florida and from other places not so well known. The figure is featured prominently but abstraction is also embraced. Immersive compositions are informed by color, materiality, identity, historic and current culture.
