Collection of The Studio Museum in Harlem, Gift of Stuart Liebman in memory of Joseph B. Liebman.

Centered around three distinct yet interrelated eras in the Studio Museum’s history—the Harlem Renaissance, the politically and socially charged 1960s and 70s and the vibrant contemporary moment. REPRESENT features highlights from the Museum’s permanent collection and provides a glimpse into the diversity and multiplicity of artworks created by artists of African descent. The premiere institution for the presentation of such works locally, nationally and internationally, the Studio Museum’s permanent collection is testament to a longstanding commitment to the support and presentation of established and emerging black artists. With REPRESENT, the Museum continues to expand its role as a site for the  dynamic exchange of ideas about art and society. This exhibition is organized by The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York.
