BIRTH OF A STAR—Madelynn Green’s first solo show—is on view in Paris through the end of the week.
Green explores notions of stardom in relation to Blackness as central motifs from the Black imagination, the significance of the North Star during slavery, to the prevalence of stardom in contemporary music and culture. Green’s process refuses traditional conventions of painting; each work is built slowly from a black background.*
Through February 27.
64 Rue de Turenne, 3rd, Paris.
