Cuban-born painter Osvaldo Mesa explores influences of Baroque painting, Abstraction, fetish objects, and forms found in nature. The result is a strong mix of Surrealism and Latin American Baroque aesthetics that is both completely mysterious and unique.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is the artist’s monumental installation, Birth of a Nation (2014), which represents the abstracted figure of a black woman nursing a white infant against the backdrop of the first official flag of the United States. Suspended above a mound of earth, the quilt is surrounded by Towns’ ongoing Story Quilts series (2016–), a cycle of seven works in luminous fabrics and glass beads that narrate the life of Nat Turner and his 1831 rebellion.

This exhibition presents approximately 20 works that illustrate the honored place birds hold within numerous African cultures. Inspired by our recent acquisition of a rare Pende Gitenga mask of the early to mid-20th century, the exhibition considers the role of birds within initiation, healing, and harvest rituals; within home décor and security; and within hunting practices. Long considered wondrous beings that transcend known worlds, birds have enjoyed a strong and steady presence in African life for centuries.
In collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Advanced Media Studies, the BMA presents an exhibition of works by MacArthur Award-winner Mary Reid Kelley and her collaborator and husband Patrick Kelley. The exhibition includes two films featuring their signature black-and-white sets and costumes.

Chloe Irla’s mixed-media paintings incorporate textile elements combined with acrylic paints and digital printing to create intricate, richly textured works.
