We were so excited to see @derrickadamsny monumental work, Floater 74, prominently featured in @archdigest latest home tour of the stunning La Jolla, California home of @aliciakeys and @therealswizzz! In the video, Swizz Beatz says of the work, “It’s like a family portrait of our family. You never really see Black people swimming in pools much, so that piece was real strong for the living room.”

Many of you may remember this very same painting was on view at the HRM during the unforgettable 2020 exhibition “Derrick Adams: Buoyant.” This was the first museum exhibition to showcase Adams’ “Floaters” series, a collection of vividly painted portraits depicting Black people in various states of rest and play, buoyantly floating on calm waters.

Create your own landscapes out of fabric this Saturday 11/6 in “Landscape Looking and Making with Donna Chambers” from 1-3pm! First, join Chambers in the galleries for a conversation sparked by the comparison of two landscapes - one from “African American Art in the 20th Century” and one from “Landscape Art and Virtual Travel.” Then, the artist will lead a workshop to create a fabric collage landscape that draws on the vast potential of the textile arts. Recommended for ages 13+. Free with Museum admission.

This is the first in a series of programs that link “African American Art in the 20th Century” and “Landscape Art & Virtual Travel” through the sensibility and practice of contemporary African American artists.

Thanks ArtsWestchester for featuring HRM’s current exhibitions and Teaching Artist-in-Residence and featured artist Jamel Robinson in the latest issue of ArtsNews!

Come see “Jamel Robinson: Beauty from Ashes” and “African American Art in the 20th Century.” These exhibitions work in conversation with one another to tell the stories and the lived experiences of African Americans from the Harlem Renaissance and the civil rights era, to the present day.

For Robinson, the concept of beauty emerging from ashes “holds true to the Black experience with the historical and present day ashes served to us in America, to my personal experience of navigating life’s challenges, and to the extended universal view of everyone’s ability to use circumstance as a platform of expression.”

Museum hours are Thursday-Sunday from 12-5pm. The exhibitions are on view through January 16, 2022.

11/03/2021

Happy birthday to #LoïsMailouJones! Jones, whose work is featured in “African American Art in the 20th Century,” was born #OTD in 1905. Jones’ career spanned more than 70 years, and during that time she tackled a wide variety of subjects— from French, Haitian, and New England landscapes to the sources and issues of African American culture.

Although she was 65 years old the first time she travelled to Africa, its forms, rhythmic cadences, and vibrant colors infused her art since her student years. At the center this artwork “Moon Masque,” 1971, is a papier-mâché replica of a heart-shaped white Kwele mask from Zaire surrounded by masklike profiles and designs drawn from Ethiopian textiles.

See this work and many more in “African American Art in the 20th Century”, featuring work by 34 African American artists who came to prominence during the period bracketed by the Harlem Renaissance and the civil rights movement. Learn more: hrm.org/african-american-art-in-the-20th-century/

African American Art in the 20th Century is organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The C.F. Foundation in Atlanta supports the museum’s traveling exhibition program, Treasures to Go. The William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment Fund provided financial support.

At the Hudson River Museum, this exhibition is supported by the City of Yonkers, Mayor Mike Spano. Additional support is provided by The Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts, Tom and Terry D’Auria, and Bevy Smith.

Exhibitions are made possible by assistance provided by Westchester County

Happy #DíadeMu***os! Day of the Dead, or Día de Mu***os, is celebrated on November 1 and 2 in the southern regions of Mexico. November 1st is generally referred to as Día de los Inocentes, or Day of the Innocents, and November 2nd is Día de Todos Santos, or All Souls Day, when families go to the cemetery to decorate the graves and tombs of their relatives. Death is a natural part of the human life cycle, and Mexicans view this holiday not as days of mourning but as days of celebration, believing their loved ones’ souls will awaken and celebrate with them.

At the HRM, we had a Community Altar in the lobby, which visitors contributed to during Halloweekend! Thank you to everyone who placed photos of their loved ones and created a paper Cempasúchil, or Mexican Marigold. And a big shout out to the #HRMJuniorDocents and Viridiana Choy, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, for assembling this beautiful altar!

Happy Halloween! In honor of All Hallows Eve, here is a spooky selection from the #HRMCollections. “Ghost” by artist #DanHillier was featured in the 2018 exhibition “The Neo-Victorians: Contemporary Artists Revive Gilded-Age Glamour” alongside a wide range of artwork that engaged with the aesthetics of the nineteenth century.

@mrdanhillier portrays the heads in his “portraits” as a source of creative power. The faces are obscured, yet the heads radiate a mysterious, perhaps malignant force. Like Victorian women wearing heavy mourning veils, his figures have their identity hidden and this simple act of covering may communicate emotions as varied as shame, the erotic, or the fragile eroding of the interior ego.

Hillier bases his prints on collages and ink drawings created from his imagination and found imagery. The compositions he favors contain a single human figure combined with varying elements of animal, plant, and mineral forms. These “characters” act as composites of human and non-human attributes, inspired by ancient mythological beings, Eastern religious symbols, Victorian freak-shows, dream imagery, and not-so-subconscious sexual desires.
