“Black Refractions: Highlights from The Studio Museum in Harlem” is an exhibit which will travel for the next two-years while the Studio Museum is closed for construction of the new David Adjaye-designed building.
The exhibit is curated by Connie H. Choi, associate curator of the Studio Museum, featuring the work of 80 artists like Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Alma Thomas, Faith Ringgold, and Kehinde Wiley. This exhibit is organized with the American Federation of the Arts.
