Explore Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop during this online event with assistant curator Carrie Springer and curatorial assistant Mia Matthias. The exhibition features fourteen early members of the Kamoinge Workshop, an artist collective founded in 1963 by a group of Black photographers who were deeply committed to photography's power and status as an independent art form. Their work includes depictions of everyday life in Black communities, abstract and surreal images, and portraits of noted jazz musicians. Many of the artists also photographed significant moments during the civil rights movement and expressed a global sense of diasporic 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 questions and discussion.

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
