Dawoud Bey, Harlem, U.S.A., 1975 -1979
Alongside our booth we will present an exclusive solo project by Dawoud Bey. For the first time in New York in over forty years, we will present the entire suite of photographs from Dawoud Bey’s historically important series Harlem, U.S.A., 1975-1979. This body of work debuted at The Studio Museum in Harlem in 1979 and marked the artist’s first solo exhibition. Growing up in Queens, Bey began photographing Harlem whilst still a teenager. His black and white photographs capture subjects Bey encountered on the street and depict the variety of Harlem’s street life and its residents: the barber, the patrician, the church ladies, the stylish youth, and the elderly, amongst others. These works convey the dignity and respect Bey brings to the subjects he depicts, an approach that has characterized the artist’s work from the very beginning and continues to inform his ongoing visualization of collective experience and history.
