The Samuel P. Harn Museum presents an exhibition that juxtaposes the work of Josef Albers, an artist focused on the psychic and emotive qualities of color, with African and African American artists who confront the historic and contemporary traces of colonialism as they contribute to the power of healing and renewal.  Both aesthetic and political trajectories intertwine, demanding sensitivity, keen perception, and a heightened awareness of context, change and transformation. Works by El Anatsui, William Kentridge, Zanele Muholi, Zohra Opoku and Yelimane Fall are just a few of the pieces made from the finest aesthetic and poetic practice. Through July 8, 2018. www.harn.ufl.edu.
