Kerry James Marshall: 35 years of painting black life in America

Press Play goes to LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art to check out a 35-year retrospective of Kerry James Marshall’s work. Marshall’s paintings depict everyday black life, landscapes and historical events. Some of the pieces take up entire walls. One is a scene in a barbershop, where men have braids piled up on their heads like royalty, and the barber has a halo. Another shows a beauty parlor filled with stunning black women.

"Kerry James Marshall: Mastry" is on display at MOCA in downtown LA.
