Anima: The Essence of Blacknuss

Anima: The Essence of Blacknuss

July 25 – September 27, 2020

Anima: The Essence of Blacknuss is a community companion show to the exhibition Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite and features the photography of Columbia creative Dalvin “Mustafa” Spann, a multimedia artist working in graphic design, music, fine art, and photography. Anima (Latin for soul) is deeply rooted in Spann’s appreciation of clothing, culture, and artistic associations with photographers like Brathwaite and jazz artists like Rashaan Roland Kirk and his song “Blacknuss.” This exhibition features 10 color and black-and-white images that offer elegant visual narratives around identity-building and cross-cultural references.
