Perspectives 157: Xaviera Simmons
The Contemporary Arts Museums Zilkha Gallery has more album covers than a fanboys bedroom in Perspectives 157: Xaviera Simmons. The walls are plastered with art from albums by some of the best musicians in music history, notable because they are all African-American. The installation, Digital Good Time (How To Break Your Own Heart), features artists like Miles Davis, Coltrane and Hendrix tucked in among a wealth of other black performers like Nas, Notorious B.I.G. and, of course, Aretha. The show is an undeniable gauge of the importance of black music to a shared culture.
