Collages, paintings, and sculptures are showing adoration to the Black body and spirit this season. 

Concepts like what it means to come of age across cultures, how personal narratives can shake collective comfort, the balance between being desired and marginalized, and who gets to be seen as a God are being investigated by colorful brush strokes, careful fabric assembly, and masterful sculpting. Artists are using meditative practice to express fresh ideas that have us rushing to the galleries around the country.

See 18 exhibitions we can’t wait to visit this fall below.
