Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art
November 14–March 9, 2014
Radical Presence: Black Performance in Contemporary Art, co-presented by the Studio Museum in Harlem and NYU's Grey Art Gallery, is the first comprehensive survey of more than five decades of performance art by black visual artists. Part II (at the Studio Museum; Part I is at NYU until December 7) includes an array of video and photography together with set pieces that document the artists' creative process and how performance art showcased changing social thought. Highlighted artists include Derrick Adams, Terry Adkins, Theaster Gates, Girl (Chitra Ganesh + Simone Leigh) and Carrie Mae Weems.
