> DESCRIPTION

For the first time since its exhibition in 1993, the Studio Museum will be presenting conceptual artist Fred Wilson (b. 1954)’s installation Local Color, originally created for the Studio Museum exhibition Artists Respond: The “New World” Question.

Known for his installation and projects in museums and cultural institutions throughout the world, Wilson’s Local Color incorporates traditional African and Caribbean artifacts from the Studio Museum’s permanent collection and an assortment of objects the artist purchased along Harlem’s 125th Street. Interested in the intersections between art and popular culture, Wilson asks viewers to consider what museums choose to collect and which histories are preserved.
