Basquiat at The Broad

I have always appreciated the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. In fact, I wrote my undergrad art history thesis about the public perception of his racial identity to his work. At The Broad, it was inspiring to see Basquiat’s work in a dedicated section. Must-see section of their permanent collection gallery!

Anishinaabeg: Art & Power

The wonderful story of the Anishinaabeg people is told in the exhibition Anishinaabeg: Art & Power at the Royal Ontario Museum. Using art to discuss cultural traditions and their knowledge, their art was deeply influenced by inter-communtiy relationships with other indigenous groups and the arrival of Europeans to Canada. Humans, their ancestors, nature, ceremony and supernatural beings known as spirits are depicted in the artwork. It was a true honor to see the work in person on this weekend to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day in America!
