SOUTH BY SOUTH HARLEM

Group show dives into contemporary art and black life

The Studio Museum in Harlem presents the work of 35 intergenerational American artists in the new exhibition, “When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South.” Pieces include paintings, drawings, sculptures, and assemblages by well-known artists such as Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems (who also currently has a show at the Guggenheim), and Ralph Lemon, as well as “self-taught, spiritually inspired, and incarcerated artists,” with most of the work ranging from 1964 to the present day. The museum also welcomes “Glenn Kaino: 19.83,” a collaboration between Kaino and American athlete Tommie Smith, best known for giving a black power salute from the medal podium at the 1968 Olympic Games, and “Draped Down,” a group show that looks at both the implicit and explicit references to fashion in visual art.
Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, noon; Saturdays, 10 a.m. Starts: March 27. Continues through June 29, 2014
