Beauty and Bite

Beauty and Bite examines art from the Tang Teaching Museum collection by artists including Nayland Blake, Frank Moore, and Kara Walker. Significant works by each artist are presented: Blake’s Feeder 2, life-size cabin made of gingerbread; an archive of drawings related to Moore’s Beehive film and ballet from the mid-1980s; and Walker’s 26-screenprint series The Emancipation Approximation. These works, and others on display, examine questions of race, gender, and sexuality through performative representations that are mythologized yet rooted in US histories and contemporary life.
