If Black Saints Could Fly 23
by Marlon Forrester

If Black Saints Could Fly 23 explores ideas of transformation and ritual as it continues Marlon Forrester’s ongoing artistic interventions around the mediation of the Black male figure in the Americas. A new suite of paintings is presented alongside materials that include a primer on the festivals of Guyana, the artworks of Chartres Cathedral, and the geometry of the basketball court.
