Must see exhibitions at The James Museum

There are currently two brilliant exhibitions on view at the downtown museum: Reverberations and Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day.

REVERBERATIONS seeks to showcase the highs and lows of the Black experience in America, highlighting themes of family and community as well as marginalization and prejudice.

Curator of the exhibition, Desmond Clark, shares about REVERBERATIONS in this way, “Can you hear the song that has been playing for over four centuries? Can you feel how it vibrates our nation? Can you see how it has affected your neighbor, your friends, and your family? These artists live this every day. They weave the stories of past BIPOC people with their own. They inform and shape the art and actions that will come after. The rich history passed down for generations displayed in the images in this exhibition do not just echo; they reverberate.”

365 works of depth, beauty and whimsy on view

Ergo Sum: A Crow a Day is an exhibition that features 365 original works of art by Canadian-born artist Karen Bondarchuk. In 2014, Bondarchuk set out to mark the passing time that her mother – diagnosed with dementia in 2010 – no longer could. For 365 days, she produced a crow a day on a small hand-cut panel, remembering her mother as she once was and grieving her loss. The resulting body of work explores communication and an artist’s relationship to the world; it resonates for its depth, beauty, and whimsy.
