Studio Museum in Harlem
144 West 125th Street
The Studio Museum in Harlem and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture Present Studio Salon: Titus Kaphar and Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad Discuss The New Jim Crow. Studio Salon is the Studio Museum in Harlem’s literary society that invites visitors to participate in an ongoing series of talks, book clubs and writing workshops inspired by exhibitions and aimed at encouraging self-expression and critical dialogue. Recreating the intimacy and candid nature of a studio visit, exhibiting artist Titus Kaphar will be joined by Schomburg Director Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad for a walk-through and discussion of The Jerome Project, his exhibition of small-scale works that directly engage contemporary social issues, particularly the criminal justice system and prison-industrial complex. In this conversation, Kaphar and Muhammad will explore Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” as integral source material that informed the artist’s personal research and evolving modes of representation for this very timely and important project.
Ticketed: $10 for General Admission and $5 for Students. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
