We were excited to find a lovely mention of our “Becoming” show on that museum’s blog this morning. The Studio Museum is the flagship institution for black contemporary art. Our two museums share many connections.
In and out of the Armory show, here in New York, we are busy seeking out artists important to the Nasher Museum.
Their work stands out in what is otherwise an overwhelming week of art.
At the Studio Museum in Harlem, we took in Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s solo exhibition, “Any Number of Preoccupations.” The London-based artist’s lush portrait, above, is part of the Nasher Museum’s upcoming show, “Building the Contemporary Collection: Five Years of Acquisitions.”
