Member Preview Days for Dawoud Bey: An American Project

Apr 15–Apr 16, 2021
10:30 am–6 pm

Floor 8

All members

Dawoud Bey: An American Project presents more than four decades of work by Dawoud Bey. Grounded in the rich traditions of the American portrait and street photographers who came before him, Bey makes work that brings renewed urgency to the question of what it means to represent America with a camera. From his earliest street portraits in Harlem through his most recent project imagining an escape from slavery on the Underground Railroad, Bey’s work is both a form of personal expression as well as an act of political responsibility, poignantly meditating on visibility, power, and race.

Thursday and Friday, April 15–16
10:30 am–6 pm
