The California African American Museum has announced an agreement to curate exhibitions for Art + Practice over the next five years. First up is "Deborah Roberts: I'm," a traveling show originated by The Contemporary Austin. Robert's mural Little man, little man (2020) will be installed at CAAM.
In today's New York Times, Jori Finkel profiles CAAM director Cameron Shaw (whose accomplishments include winning $10,000 on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?). Shaw describes the "four pillars" underlying CAAM's programming, one of which is abstraction.
