On February 9 2021, HBO debuts a feature-length film that explores how two centuries of art by African-Americans forged a path for contemporary Black artists. Black Art: In the Absence of Light is compiled from interviews with contemporary artists, scholars, and curators and was inspired by David C. Driskell's 1976 exhibition "Two Centuries of Black American Art." This comprehensive exhibition corrected the exclusionary art historical record and staked a claim for the contributions of black and African-American artists.
The ISE-DA team will be hosting a discussion on the documentary with Atlanta arts administrator Grace Gardner. February 18, 2020
