Surviving in a surrealist canvas
“A Litany for Survival,” Alexandria Smith’s first solo show in Boston, hangs at Boston University’s Stone Gallery through January 27. Titled for the Audre Lord poem of the same name, the exhibition explores black female subjectivity and politicization. Using dark tones, doubling and mostly large-scale canvases, Smith illustrates the interior of the black female experience in a beautiful, surrealist manner.
