Accidental Pornographies: Lesson Plans 1-9 showcases nine drawings by Mary Walling Blackburn, founder of the experimental school for women, The Anhoek School, that were originally composed as lesson plans for a substitute-taught workshop at the Blanton Museum of Art. The drawings, smudged charcoal and dripping black paint, are accompanied by a video installation, Black Divine Light, where a hand-held camera makes record of a black mirror that is alternately reflecting a violent summer storm and the opening between a woman’s legs.
