Radical Reading Room

For Radical Reading Room, The Studio Museum in Harlem invited over 40 artists, writers, publishers, and community organizations to share works—their own or those they admire—that engage with the history of black printed matter and the discourse surrounding its circulation. The resulting contributions, presented for visitors to explore at its Studio Museum 127 location, address how art is produced and contextualized, the performance of language, and the creation of black narratives. Housed in a site-specific structure, the reading room celebrates creators of African descent who contribute to contemporary visual culture and challenge structures of colonized knowledge production.

As Radical Reading Room pays tribute to Harlem as a site for black creative congregation, we invite visitors to browse the available materials and contribute their own.

Pur·suit x ICP Projected

The International Center of Photography’s ongoing series Projected highlights the work of new voices who tell stories through concerned photography and visual culture.

During the day, the work is presented on monitors and during evening hours, images are literally “projected” onto the windows of the ICP Museum; they can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the museum and are most visible after sunset.

The Portrait is Political

The Portrait is Political

This trio of exhibitions will be on view at BRIC House during the BRIC OPEN.

On View: Apr 24 - May 12, 2019

The overarching theme, The Portrait is Political, alludes to the fact that all three exhibitions on view in the Gallery focus on artists and subjects who represent marginalized, under-recognized communities in Brooklyn. The first step in social justice - the theme of the 2019 BRIC OPEN - is validation of the individual; the portrait is a key means of recognizing individual lives.
