Charles White: Celebrating the Gordon Gift features drawings, color lithographs, album covers and more. Born in 1918 in Chicago, White dedicated his life and artistic practice to creating a visual archive of the Black experience in the United States. Fighting against widely circulating racist and grotesque representations of Black people, White created images of African Americans endowed with “truth, dignity, and beauty.” The Blanton’s exhibition foregrounds White’s connection to his contemporaries and his participation in larger social and political movements in his life-long career as an artist, activist and educator. The exhibition is included in the price of admission. (512) 471-5482

Arte Sin Fronteras: Prints from the Self Help Graphics Studio highlights the radical and formally rigorous work that Chicanx printmakers produced at this famous printmaking studio and cultural hub in East L.A. Named after the Latinx art Galería Sin Fronteras that Dr. Gilberto Cárdenas founded in East Austin, the exhibition showcases a selection of vibrant screenprints from Self Help’s Experimental Atelier Program gifted to the Blanton in 2017. These works, ranging from the late 1970s to mid-1990s, a period when Latinx/Chicanx art began to achieve national recognition, explore fluid cultural, gender, and political identities. The exhibit also explores immigration, border-crossing and Indigenous traditions. Exhibit is included with museum admission. (512) 471-5482

Joiri Minaya: Labadee

Through Dec. 8, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Blanton Museum of Art 200 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Austin Austin

,
Joiri Minaya’s video Labadee explores the social and economic dynamics at play in Labadee, Haiti, on a private beach leased to Royal Caribbean cruise lines until 2050. Connecting the Caribbean tourism industry with the legacy of invasion and colonization, the video begins with passages from Christopher Columbus’s diary recounting his arrival in the New World that transition seamlessly into a description of a contemporary visit to Labadee. There, a wall separates the tourists from the locals; the only Haitians allowed on the beach are those employed by the resort or who pay a fee to sell goods or perform. 5124717324
