> DESCRIPTION

Blues for Smoke brings into focus a wide range of contemporary art, music, literature, and film through the lens of the blues. Featuring the work of visual artists such as David Hammons, Zoe Leonard, and Jean-Michel Basquiat alongside the music of jazz, blues, and hip-hop legends, the exhibition considers how the blues might help us understand themes of place, performance, and identity in recent art.
