16. “Kevin Claiborne: Black Enough” at Thierry Goldberg Gallery, New York
Curator and critic Antwaun Sargent has written the essay for Kevin Claiborne’s first New York show, which features a mix of sculpture and photography that considers Black identity and oppression in the year 2020. Clairborne, who has captured some of the most striking images of this summer’s Black Lives Matter protests, transforms police barricades into sculptures such as a cross recalling the iconography of the crucifixion and poses though-provoking questions, like “where is Black enough,” in bold text overlaid atop black and white photographs of the Joshua Tree desert.
Location: Thierry Goldberg Gallery, 109 Norfolk Street, New York
Time: Wednesday–Sunday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
