In recent years, the art galleries at Tennessee State University have housed some of my favorite events and exhibits — from William Pope.L’s video shoot of a herd of Nashvillians dressed as General Lee, to Gary Grier’s grandiose paintings of everyday life. But lately the galleries have been pretty quiet, and their websites haven’t been updated for at least a year. So you can understand my excitement upon reading a press release about two exhibits at the university’s Hiram Van Gordon Gallery and the Space for New Media. Kevin Jerome Everson, a filmmaker who combines scripted and documentary moments, will be screening Century: Films and Props. Justin Randolph Thompson will show Rag Poppin’, a multimedia installation, performance and sound piece that addresses social hierarchies in the shoeshine trade. Both exhibits open today, beginning early enough in the afternoon to allow you to drop by Watkins’ Natalia Almada screening afterwards. If you pace yourself, today might be the day you achieve an art-lover’s version of runner’s high.
