Tonight is the last night of A Moment in Time, a deeply personal solo exhibition by the Grammy-nominated, visionary artist Blitz Bazawule. The exhibition is the first major visual project since the artist co-directed Beyonce’s Black Is King in 2020, and follows the news of Bazawule’s role as director of Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg’s The Color Purple musical. The genesis of the series was inspired by the artist’s’ memories of the faded black-and-white photos that lined the walls of his childhood home in Ghana— images of his family elegantly dressed in their Sunday best that stirred a deep sense of nostalgia, which then grew to a strong desire to bring those moments back to life.
