> DESCRIPTION

Brothers and Sisters is a cross-generational exhibition that examines the relationships between a selection of Beauford Delaney’s (1901-1979) paintings and prints made between 1958 and 1969, and works in The Studio Museum in Harlem’s permanent collection. The works in this exhibition will be displayed in small groupings—"families" sharing formal and stylistic characteristics—with an emphasis on the continuation and expansion of painterly abstraction.

The exhibition includes work from some of Delaney’s contemporaries, such as Herbert Gentry (1919–2003), Jack Whitten (b. 1939) and Alma Thomas (1891–1978), as well as contemporary artists Kori Newkirk (b. 1970), Rashawn Griffin (b. 1980) and Julie Mehretu (b. 1970), among others.

Brothers and Sisters is organized by Jamillah James, 2012 Curatorial Fellow, as part of the Museum’s year-long curatorial fellowship program dedicated to fostering emerging curators of diverse backgrounds.
