David Kordansky Gallery is pleased to present Magic, Mystery & Legerdemain, the gallery’s first solo exhibition event by Derek Fordjour. Taking its title from the magician Black Herman’s 1938 autobiographical book Black Herman’s Secrets of Magic, Mystery and Legerdemain, the show provides a multifaceted forum in which Fordjour explores magic as it relates to power, race, and a myriad of illusions throughout American history. Magic, Mystery & Legerdemain will be on view March 26 through May 7, 2022, with magic performances by Kenrick “Ice” McDonald occurring daily at 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays during the run of the show. McDonald’s presentation is called The Legend of Black Herman, written and directed by Numa Perrier, in which he portrays Black Herman in a 20 minute performance. An opening reception will take place on Saturday, March 26 from 6 to 8 p.m., with the magic performance occurring at 7 p.m.
