Black Art? 5.21.14

so there have been a lot of great exhibitions of black art and work lately in bk and manhattan but I’m lowkey hesitant to go because of the overwhelmingly white audiences (and white gaze amirite?) who go not just for the art (and the sexy n kinda tragic black/brown story line that comes with it) but to watch people of color experiencing black art spaces. 

much love to other black/brown creatives who have to deal with being watched/drooled on by white liberal art critics who want to observe us & “know”/consume our feelings and perspective on our own histories/stories/bodies/souls being put on display on white walls (so you can see it better?)
