DESCRIPTION

Fore is the highly anticipated fourth installment of the Studio Museum’s “F” series, which includes Freestyle (2001), Frequency (2005–06) and Flow (2008). Like its popular and critically acclaimed predecessors, Fore is a non-thematic group presentation reflecting a multitude of ideas, approaches and processes. Featuring twenty-nine emerging artists of African descent living and working in the United States, the exhibition brings a new generation into the forefront of visual and critical dialogue.

The artists in Fore embrace a wide range of media and draw from a number of art-historical strategies, including realist painting, site-responsive projects and incorporation of found objects and materials. Reflecting the artistic, cultural and social changes that have occurred locally and nationally over the past five years, many work in performative, socially engaged and time-based media; others bring twenty-first century perspectives to traditional media, including painting, sculpture and drawing.
