Using films Baby Boy (2001) by John Singleton and Moonlight (2016) by Barry Jenkins as cinematic bookends, baby boy is a exhibition curated by Black Radical Imagination that explores the multitudes of Black-American malehood in the 21st century.


Posing the questions, How has the stereotypical singularity of Black malehood become a multiplicity that is representative and inclusive of queer folks expanded our ideas of love and liberation? and what can we piece together in highlighting two “golden ages” of Black cinema and what their narratives suggest of the political and cultural state of America? The exhibition features works by Brandon Coley Cox, Christopher Harris, Daniel T. Gaitor-Lomack, Finas Townsend III and Jamilah Sabur.

Black Radical Imagination is a touring program of visual shorts that delve into the worlds of new media, video art, and experimental narrative. Focusing on new stories within the Diaspora, each artist contributes their own vision of post-modern society through the state of current black culture. An artistic movement and school of thought, Black Radical Imagination focuses on aesthetics of futurism, surrealism, and the magnificent through the context of cinema.
