Lil Buck dancing through Fondation Louis Vuitton

Black people making their own forms of art in art museums is nothing new (just ask Beyoncé) and Lil Buck’s performance shares another common theme: Paris.

In a short film by Andrew Margetson, Lil Buck dances through a tour of the Shchukin collection at Fondation Louis Vuitton and explains his history of dance and performing art.

As performing artists and as dancers, we see everything as art.

Lil Buck

My favourite part—albeit a morally dissonant one—is when Lil Buck performed in front of Picasso’s “Three Women”, less so for the artist but more for the juxtaposition and colour tones.

It’s a beautiful film that demonstrates multiple forms of modern art from different eras.
