STUDIO MUSEUM IN HARLEM

"Freestyle" is former Whitney curator Thelma Golden's first major contemporary exhibition since she landed at the Studio Museum as deputy director early last year, and it promises to breathe new life into that venerable I Harlem institution by looking back that is, by reviving its old mandate to showcase the latest from African American artists. This means you'll see work by Laylah Ali, Kojo Griffin, Rico Gatson, Kira Lynn Harris, Dave McKenzie, and Julie Mehretu, among others, in an aptly titled show that cuts across media and reflects influences and concerns ranging from hip-hop to the debates around multiculturalism. The magazine format catalogue includes a text on each of the twenty-eight young and mostly (as yet) unrepresented artists.
