Critic Reviews for Black Art: In the Absence of Light
This is an essential and revelatory glimpse at the accomplishments of today's Black artists.
The most compelling moments of "Black Art" put us in the company of artists, usually in their studios, sometimes installing works in exhibitions or fielding questions from small kids at openings.
By itself, any one of those topics would fill a documentary to overflowing... Better too much than too little, of course.
The film never dips into saccharine platitudes, and it is unafraid to examine the defects within artistic movements that, while fighting for racial justice, had their own blindspots.
The next best thing to visiting a museum, with gorgeous examples of works that have too often been overlooked. Director Sam Pollard... crams in a lot of fascinating history, but you'll wish the camera would linger a bit longer on the art.
