At intervals the piano plays Biggers’s rendition of Strange Fruit, a song from the 1930s popularized by the blues singer Billie Holiday that refers to lynching. Blossom will be presented along with several thematically related installations by the artist. This focused selection of Biggers’s work is his first museum exhibition in New York.

Organization: This installation is organized by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum.
