This exhibit, curated by Lauren Haynes and featuring new gifts to the Studio Museum's collection, orbits the Seventies in medium and scale as well as timestamp: Anchored by a gigantic bronze/hemp/rope sculpture by the brilliant sculptor and poet Barbara Chase-Riboud, the show pulls together a diverse panoply of paintings, prints, photographs, and drawings. A massive collage by Benny Andrews hangs near Samuel Fosso's iconic self-portrait; also on display are works by Ed Clark, Sam Gilliam, Betye Saar, and Senga Nengudi. The works, 41 in total, capture the spirit of a particularly unique and lively period in African-American art, one that yet abides — many of the artists featured are still alive and working. This show celebrates their stories.
