"The black model, from Géricault to Matisse, is a large-scale exhibition on a subject that has so far been little treated in France, whereas it has been for a long time in the United States. The Parisian exhibition comes from elsewhere, second augmented version of Posing Modernity, which took place this winter at the Wallach Art Gallery of Columbia University."

And it is fantastic!

Yoko Ono - Add Color (Refugee Boat) (1960/2019)
LAST TWO DAYS - June 28 & 29, 12-8pm
203 Front Street, Seaport District, New York, NY 10038
Add Color (Refugee Boat) (1960/2019) is an interactive installation conceived of by visual artist Yoko Ono. Upon opening, the work will be comprised simply of a boat placed within an empty space. The public will then be invited to paint their thoughts, ideas and hopes on the walls, floor and boat. As the installation progresses, messages will be written in support, contrast and literal obfuscation of one another, moving the space from visual calm to a layered visual chaos – a beautiful sea of color from afar, a more restless reality upon closer inspection. Freely imbued in this way with a multiplicity of thoughts, each time Add Color (Refugee Boat) is shown it both shares in the memory of past iterations, while taking on a life and a meaning of its own - acutely reflecting the time, place and people that come together to create it.
