Committed To The Image: Contemporary Black Photographers

Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York City

Having once riled Mayor Rudolph Giuliani with the "Sensation" show, the Brooklyn Museum has done it again with Renee Cox's Yo Mama's Last Supper, in which Cox features herself naked in the place of Christ. It's all just so much stale postmodern show biz, slick and corny at the same time. Don't let it divert you from Bob Greene's hot shots of Papua New Guinea or Beuford Smith's Hip-Hop poster series, highlights in an otherwise benign but mostly unremarkable show.
