Artwork of the Week: "Junkanoo Cosmic Dancer" by Brent Malone


This week, we highlight the artwork of the late Brent Malone in preparation for our upcoming exhibition for Transforming Spaces, MUSE. Throughout his life's work, Malone drew inspiration from a select number of models that nourished his profound interest in the figure. In "Junkanoo Cosmic Dancer", Malone not only draws inspiration from the figure of the cowbellman - grounded in a shroud of Junkanoo garb - but also draws from the historic ritual of Junknaoo itself.
