Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song at Von Lintel Gallery
For those 2 people still left in Chelsea.. There was one group show MAO thought well worth checking out.
Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song at the Von Lintel Gallery.
One of the best gallery group shows we've seen this year. We found they've included some (photos, painting, and sculpture) by many of our most admired artists. It's also particularly nice to see a gallery do a group show and not pack it with only the artists they represent. Plus, how could anyone not like a show that uses the word Baadasssss in the title!!
As expected, many of the works were already sold out by the opening party.
The title comes from a Melvin Van Peebles’ infamous 1971 film, the exhibition of fourteen African American artists is also a journey that examines the representation of African Americans in popular culture.
The show is open till January 20th... so all those Art Basel Miami people can still get to see it!
