Point of View Speaker Series: The Photography of Dawoud Bey

Saturday, March 17

Art Community Parkway District

Chicago-based photographer and educator Dawoud Bey’s four decade career has challenged viewers and institutions to reconsider the socialn presence and histories of marginalized communities through large scale color photography. In conversation with Brooke Davis Anderson, PAFA’s Edna S. Tuttleman Director of the Museum, this program will examine his practice from his earliest project Harlem, U.S.A. (1975-1979) to recent bodies of work like The Birmingham Project (2012), Harlem Redux (2014-2017), and Night Coming Tenderly, Black which will debut at the Front Triennial in Cleveland, OH in July 2018, providing a rare opportunity to explore the subjects, themes, and issues that have informed the ongoing work of this 2017 recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship.
