On June 2, join artists Leilah Babirye, Hugh Hayden, Dozie Kanu, and Kiyan Williams for a virtual conversation about their new works for Black Atlantic with Adjunct Curator Daniel S. Palmer. Their commissions, wide-ranging both materially and conceptually, create an exchange of ideas that proposes an open, multifaceted, and heterogeneous idea of identity in the United States today. Black Atlantic is an exhibition inspired by the diaspora across the ocean that connects Africa with the Americas and Europe. Over the centuries, these transatlantic networks have led to complex hybrid cultures and identities like those of the five artists featured in Black Atlantic. Each installation suggests a unique creative approach towards crafting new futures through the personal gestures of hand-made work, often in dialogue with the processes of large-scale fabrication. The exhibition will be on view through November 27, 2022 throughout Brooklyn Bridge Park.
