The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art presents “Harlem: Found Ways,” an exhibit of art and photography that captures the rich heritage, unsettling paradoxes, and uncertain future of one of the world’s most culturally influential neighborhoods. Curated by Cooper Director Vera Ingrid Grant, the exhibition is anchored by photographer Dawoud Bey’s iconic portrait series “Harlem, USA” (1975-1979), and new series “Harlem Redux” (2015-2016) which revisits the neighborhood 40 years later.
The artworks on view encompass photography, mixed media, and installation, and are anchored by photographer Dawoud Bey’s two series: the iconic “Harlem, U.S.A.,” 1975–79 and his recent series of urban landscapes “Harlem Redux,” 2014–16. A selection of works by Abigail DeVille, Glenn Ligon, Howard Tangye, Nari Ward, and Kehinde Wiley, expand and define various emergent issues in the temporal zone located between Bey’s two photographic essays. Harlem: Found Ways also features a special installation of The Studio Museum in Harlem’s project Harlem Postcards, 2000–2017. Our galleries’ pathways twist through these varying artistic perceptions and narratives of profound change.
