Thank you for the shout-out, Studio Museum of Harlem!
We found a lovely mention on that museum’s blog this morning about our new exhibition “Becoming: Photographs from the Wedge Collection,” organized by Toronto collector Kenneth Montague.
The Studio Museum is the flagship institution for black contemporary art. Our two museums share many connections.
Director Thelma Golden visited the Nasher Museum for a talk in 2008. Our exhibition “Barkley L. Hendricks: Birth of the Cool” traveled to the Studio Museum later that year. In March, our curator of contemporary art, Trevor Schoonmaker, listed the Studio Museum and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s solo exhibition there, “Any Number of Preoccupations,” on his Top Ten list of favorites during Armory Week in New York.
The Studio Museum’s blog and magazine always offer an important roundup of art from the African Diaspora. It’s exciting to share a dialogue with such an important museum.
