  • Shikeith in Elephant Magazine

    Shikeith is included in Elephant Magazine's photo feature Reframing Black Masculinity. Writer/researcher/curator Emmanuel Balogun writes, “Shikeith’s work investigates the experiences of Black men through concepts of psychic space. Throughout his work, the Black American psyche is expressed through states of meditation, prayer, and ecstasy, as images of the Black male body persist. O’ my body, make of me always a man who questions! features an anonymous man, drenched in sweat with his back arched, in a process of resurrection. The photographer positions Black male hands as a communal force of life and regeneration."

  • Hirshhorn Museum Acquires Work by Sarah Anne Johnson

    Sarah Anne Johnson's monumental 6-channel video installation The Kitchen has joined the Hirshhorn Museum of Art's permanent collection. The work is inspired by the life of Johnson’s grandmother, who, suffering from post-partum depression, was subject to forced brainwashing experiments conducted by the Canadian government in the 1950s. The Kitchen follows the artist, dressed in 1950s-style clothing, performing domestic tasks facing backwards, a representation of the difficulties her grandmother faced following her treatment.
