Artist Talk: Hunter Barnes
A Testimony of Serpent Handling
MOBIA, New York
Hunter Barnes is a photographer who focuses his artistic gaze on the faces of groups of people who are consistently misrepresented in the modern American narrative. At MOBIA he will speak about his project and book, A Testimony of Serpent Handling, and share images and personal stories from his time spent in West Virginia. “I was invited by the families and congregation of my friend’s Serpent Handling churches in West Virginia to live and document their lives. The people in these photographs took me in as one of their own. I was shown a way of life sometimes unseen and able to share their story.” - Hunter Barnes

Vanity Fair celebrate Sid Avery

"Sid shot almost every cinema giant of the mid-20th century and pulled off a feat surpassing even that: he captured them unguarded, stripping away the studio and P.R. artifice to find the people hiding underneath."

The exhibition features 27 posters spanning nearly 70 years of jazz-related cinema. These promotional posters are works of art in themselves. Jammin’, Jazzin’ & Jivin’: Jazz on Film helps illustrate the connection between jazz and its close relatives – rhythm and blues, boogie-woogie – and how these genres found audiences in the African American community and,soon after, worldwide.
