Photography and Beyond in the Kamoinge Workshop

Wed, Mar 3, 2021
7 pm

Online, via Zoom

Artists Adger Cowans, Beuford Smith, and Herb Robinson discuss their interdisciplinary artistic influences and interests, from music and film to painting and publishing. The conversation is moderated by LeRonn P. Brooks, associate curator for modern and contemporary collections, Getty Research Institute.

Presented in collaboration with Aperture, this series of programs features conversations with artists from the Kamoinge Workshop included in the exhibition Working Together: Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop currently on view at the Whitney. The talks explore the group’s genesis in Harlem in the 1960s, its role in the Black Arts movement, and the multidisciplinary interests and practices of its members, bringing together artists from the Kamoinge Workshop with scholars and critics of Black arts and culture.

Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to photography, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online.
