Ask a Curator:
Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop

Thurs, Dec 3, 2020
7 pm

Online, via Zoom

Join assistant curator Carrie Springer and curatorial assistant Mia Matthias to explore Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop. This exhibition features fourteen early members of the Kamoinge Workshop, an artist collective founded in 1963 by a group of Black photographers based in New York. Springer and Matthias will share an overview of works in the exhibition and discuss how they organized the installation. The thematic presentation includes depictions of everyday life in Black communities, abstract and surreal images, and portraits of noted jazz musicians. The artists in Working Together also photographed significant moments during the civil rights movement and expressed a global sense of community in works made during travels to Cuba, Guyana, Jamaica, Senegal, and other countries. After we hear from the curators, there will be time for Q&A.
