‘Darkness Made Visible. Derek Jarman and Mark Bradford’ opens today at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibition presents Jarman’s feature-length film ’Blue’ and Bradford’s video installation ‘Spiderman’, works that enact defiant emotional responses that channel both the personal fears and public phobias associated with the AIDS crisis.

In his work ‘Spiderman’, Mark Bradford takes on the role of a black transgender comic who is heard, but not seen in a room with a red spotlight. As a gay black man, Bradford evokes comedian Eddie Murphy’s controversial ‘Delirious’ routine from 1983, which is rife with explicitly homophobic jokes, to deliver a searing monologue on the intersecting issues of race, gender identity, and sexuality.

'Spring' and 'Rising Moon' by Arthur Dove, seen yesterday at @mfaboston When I first saw the titles I thought I was looking at the season Spring. It took me a while to see the spring. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #arthurdove #mfaboston

Cherish this Degas sculpture -The Fourteen Year Old Ballerina. Apparently I am not the only one. Every visit to the MFA is food for the heart and soul.
