NY1 Reviews Négritude at Exit Art

3_negritude

NY1 (New York One), the New York City cable news station, has reviewed the Négritude exibit at the Exit Art gallery. Négritude, an experimental multi-disciplinary exhibition, explores the visionary 20th century political and artistic movement of the same name — coined by the Martinican poet, playwright, and politician Aimé Césaire in the 1930s — which flourished among Black intellectuals in post-World War I Paris and later spread to Africa, the United States and the Caribbean. [See our earlier post Négritude, an experimental multi-disciplinary exhibition at Exit Art in NYC for more details.]

The review from NY1 is mostly descriptive, but the video (accessible through the link below), walks you through the exhibit, which gives you a sense of its visual impact in case you are interested but unable to make it to New York.
