Episode 7: The Art of Blackness

Email a Friend
Toyin Ojih Odutola's 'Hold it in Your Mouth a Little Longer' is featured in the season premiere of Empire.

Much has been made of the fashion on Empire. But the show's visuals are stunning across the board — not just the costumes, but also the sets, and especially the visual art that decorates seemingly every surface. Walking through the Lyons' world is like taking a stroll through a gallery of contemporary art from black artists. We talk to one artist, Toyin Ojih Odutola, whose piece featured prominently in the season two premiere, and explore what it means for TV's biggest show to highlight modern black artists. 

Tell us about your favorite art on the show! And get at us each and every Wednesday night @EmpirePodcast and @JozenC!
