Special Exhibition Tour
Explore contemporary American photography and portraiture with a private tour of Dawoud Bey’s major career retrospective. Since the 1970s, Bey has focused on the black subject and used his camera to depict communities and histories that have largely remained underrepresented and even unseen. Spend time with his earliest street portraits in Harlem, and look closer at his most recent series, Night Coming Tenderly, Black, which imagines the experience of an enslaved person escaping to freedom along the Underground Railroad.
