#tbt to when amanda coulson, director of the national art gallery of the bahamas and artistic director of volta, featured lavar munroe in her article, “prospect new orleans art triennale: bahamian and caribbean artists celebrated.” munroe created a work for this years prospect 4, titled “of the omens he had as he entered his own village, and other incidents that embellished and gave colour to a great history” (2017), keeping with the show’s concept of beauty flowering within inhospitable surroundings. . coulson writes, “as one of the most important contemporary art surveys in the us, having a bahamian voice—for the second edition in a row—is obviously a major achievement for our small but feisty nation and one of which we should all be incredibly proud.” . prospect.4: the lotus in spite of the swamp, curated by trevor schoonmaker, closes this weekend, february 25, 2018. . amanda coulson will be giving an artist talk at “disobedience: lavar munroe and rodrigo valenzuela”, opening at the project space on saturday, march 3. . opening reception: saturday, march 3, 2018 4 – 7pm 6:00 pm artist talk with amanda coulson (@coulson_amanda ) . . . . . . . . . #amandacoulson #lavarmunroe #nassaubahamas #bahamas #prospect4 #neworleans #trevorschoonmaker #mixedmediaartist #jenkinsjohnsongallery #disobedience

Today we are celebrating the life of peggy cooper cafritz, who sadly passed away on february 18, with her highly anticipated book, “fired up! ready to go!: finding beauty, demanding equity: an african american life in art” on stands today.  peggy’s legacy of collecting artists of color will continue to be an inspiration for future generations. . about the book: “fired up! ready to go!: finding beauty, demanding equity: an african american life in art” on stands today, featuring the collections of peggy cooper cafritz with important contributions by preeminent curators and artists. . after decades of art collecting, prominent washington d.c.–based activist, philanthropist, and founder of the august duke ellington school of the arts, peggy cooper cafritz had amassed one of the most important collections of work by artists of color in the country. but in 2009, the more than three hundred works that comprised this extraordinary collection were destroyed in the largest residential fire in washington, d.c. history. the pioneering collection included art by kara walker, kerry james marshall, mickalene thomas, yinka shonibare, nick cave, kehinde wiley, barkley l. hendricks, lorna simpson, and carrie mae weems, among many others. . her new publication beautifully illustrates 200 of the works that were lost, along with works that she has collected since the fire. . @rizzolibooks . . . . . . . . . . . . #peggycoopercafritz #rizzoli #karawalker #kerryjamesmarshall #mickalenethomas #nickcave #kehindewiley #lornasimpson #carriemaeweems #jenkinsjohnsongallery #bookrelease

If you’re on your way to see black panther or looking to spread some more comic book love, stop by jenkins johnson gallery to see johnathan payne’s installations on our mezzanine level. his large-scale tapestry-like collages, made from an assortment of shredded comics, examine the complex politics embedded in comic books. the re-launch of the black panther series, written by ta-nehisi coates, demonstrates the industry’s latest efforts to combat the structural white heteronormativity persisting in a genre that has historically left women, people of color, and q***r characters on the margins. however, still more must be done to shift the culture. for payne, occupying a minority identity parallels the experience of a superhero. _______________________ johnathan payne, untitled (ddcc), 2016, shredded comic books and adhesive, 94 x 94 inches. for inquiries please contact sf@jenkinsjohnsongallery.com _______________________ . . . #blackpanther #blackpanthermovie #wakanda #comics #comicbookart #comicbooks #johnathanpayne #tanehisicoates @tanehisi.coatess @visualartsource @sfchronicle @sfchronicle _art @sfgate @sfartdealers @sfartenthusiast @sfmagazine @sfweekly @sfnews #artexhibition #sfada #sanfrancisco #jenkinsjohnsongallery #artgallery #contemporaryart #blackartistnews #blackartnews #untitledartfair @blackartnow @blackartistnews @artblogny #blackexcellence #marvel @marvel @marvel studios

“the morning & night visual diary (11.09.16 morning)” is part of a larger series of works by leonardo benzant, completed during his 11-month residence at the galveston artist residency. these calligraphic works serve as a visual diary of automatic drawings made using water color and gouache. benzant’s practice is informed by western arts historical constructions, modalities, thoughts and contemporary discourse while drawing inspiration from rituals, spirits and the o**l traditions of the african ancestors that came across the atlantic ocean during the middle passage s***e trade. the artist states, “natural and supernatural concepts converge in a potent cauldron of spiritual syncretism, a fusion of earthly and ethereal realms.” @leonardobenzant . for inquiries please contact nyc@jenkinsjohnsongallery.com _____________________________________ image: the morning & night visual diary (11.09.16 morning) 2016 ink, watercolor, and gouache on paper with pen and brush, 17 x 13 inches . . . . . . . . . . #leonardobenzant #jenkinsjohnsonprojects #visualdiary #homeostasis #brooklyn #watercolor #automaticdrawing

Spend #blackhistorymonth with us at jenkins johnson gallery! see works by deborah roberts, on view until march 17, which includes this art piece that empowers young black girls with muhammad ali’s fists. like malcolm x, ali was a member of the nation of islam initially called himself “cassius x” before settling on the name muhammad ali. while many remember ali as an extraordinary boxer, he was also a social justice activist with outspoken views against the vietnam war, supported the palestinian struggle for liberation, and was heavily monitored by the nsa and the fbi. by viewing roberts’ “about face” and 1966 photographs of ali by gallery artist gordon parks, we hope to ensure a more comprehensive memory of muhammad ali and his legacy as part of black history month. _______________________ deborah roberts, about face, 2017, mixed media on paper, 30 x 22 inches. contact gallery for price and availability. gordon parks, untitled, miami, florida, 1966, gelatin silver print. contact gallery for sizes, prices, and availabilities. gordon parks, untitled, london, england, 1966, gelatin silver print. contact gallery for sizes, prices, and availabilities. gordon parks, untitled, miami, florida, 1966, gelatin silver print. contact gallery for sizes, prices, and availabilities. gordon parks, muhammad ali in training, miami, florida, 1966, gelatin silver print. contact gallery for sizes, prices, and availabilities. _______________________ . . . @rdeborah191 #deborahroberts @gordonparksfoundation #gordonparks #gordonparksfoundation #photography @aipad #aipad @visualartsource @sfchronicle @sfchronicle _art @sfgate @sfartdealers @sfartenthusiast @sfmagazine @sfweekly @sfnews @spelmanmuseum @fortgansevoort #artexhibition #sfada #sanfrancisco #jenkinsjohnsongallery #artgallery #contemporaryart #blackartistnews #blackartnews #untitledartfair @blackartnow @blackartistnews @artblogny #blackartist #africanartist #africanamericanart @sfaiofficial #sfai #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlmagic #blackexcellence

We are celebrating valentine’s day with “pink on pink”, from brooklyn based multidisciplinary artist, arjan zazueta. zazueta’s series, beautification, shown at the project space at the inaugural exhibition, draws inspiration from jan van huysum, the 17th century dutch artist known for his luscious paintings of impossible floral combinations. using historical flower paintings as a model, the artist responds in a minimal and personal way to death, politics and aging through beauty.  _________ pink on pink, arjan zazueta, 2017, mixed media on paper, 22 1/2 x 17 inches . @arjanzazueta . . . . . . . . . #arjanzazueta #hiddeninplainsight #derrickadams #jenkinsjohnsonprojects #brooklyn #multimedia #valentinesday

This #blackhistorymonth, celebrate #deborahroberts’s intricate series of collages at #jenkinsjohnsongallery. _______________________ by combining found and manipulated photographs with paintings and drawings, roberts’s figures exemplify the multiplicity and complexities of black identity, while subverting social ideas that seek to homogenize the black female body. although they are constructed by photographs of famous individuals, such as #michelleobama, #willowsmith, and #gloriasteinem, the images are cut and altered beyond recognition to create a portrait that adheres to a more universal beauty standard—one inclusive of women of color. this collage in particular, “untitled (armor),” features #johnlewis’s mouth and #pattismith’s arm. _______________________ the show will be on display until march 17, so stop by the gallery to see the works in person! . . . @rdeborah191 #deborahroberts @repjohnlewis @michelleobama @gloriasteinem @willowsmith #pattismith @visualartsource @sfchronicle @sfchronicle _art @sfgate @sfartdealers @sfartenthusiast @sfmagazine @sfweekly @sfnews @spelmanmuseum @fortgansevoort #artexhibition #sfada #sanfrancisco #jenkinsjohnsongallery #artgallery #contemporaryart #blackartistnews #blackartnews @blackartnow @blackartistnews @artblogny #blackartist #africanartist #africanamericanart @sfaiofficial #sfai #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlmagic #blackexcellence

Huge thanks to charles desmarais and the san francisco chronicle for their review of deborah robert’s current solo exhibition “uninterrupted” at jenkins johnson gallery! _______________________ desmarais writes, “splintery features assemble into cubist wholes. these are not broken victims, they are rugged transformers, ready for action. each figure is a collection of emotions, a multiplicity of gestures and expressions. they are diverse in color, too, as if to make clear that there is no one tone, of skin or of voice, that can encompass the black experience. or the experience, even, of a single individual. roberts’ girl-women have their own identity, yet they stand for all.” _______________________ the show will be on display until march 17, so stop by the gallery to see the works in person! . . . repost from @artguypix . . . . @rdeborah191 #deborahroberts @visualartsource @sfchronicle @sfchronicle _art @sfgate @sfartdealers @sfartenthusiast @sfmagazine @sfweekly @sfnews @spelmanmuseum @fortgansevoort #artexhibition #sfada #sanfrancisco #jenkinsjohnsongallery #artgallery #contemporaryart #blackartistnews #blackartnews #untitledartfair @blackartnow @blackartistnews @artblogny #blackartist #africanartist #africanamericanart @sfaiofficial #sfai #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlmagic #blackexcellence
