Dawoud Bey: The Birmingham Project at the National Gallery of Art (through March 17, 2019)
September 12 @ 12:00 am - 5:00 pm
Dawoud Bey: The Birmingham Project celebrates the National Gallery of Art’s recent acquisition of four large-scale photographs and one video from Bey’s most important series, “The Birmingham Project,” a deeply felt and conceptually rich monument to the victims of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, on September 15, 1963.
Dawoud Bey is an African–American photographer and educator known for large-scale portraits of sometimes marginalized subjects. Recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Grant in 2017, he is a professor and Distinguished Artist at Columbia College Chicago.
The exhibition runs through March 17, 2019.
