DESCRIPTION

Circa 1970 presents paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and sculpture from the Studio Museum’s collection. The featured works, all made between 1970 and 1979, reflect the historical, socio-political and cultural landscapes of the decade. Recent, key gifts to the Studio Museum’s permanent collection of artworks by McArthur Binion, Robert Blackburn and David Hammons conceptually and formally drive the exhibition’s examination into this rich decade.

Circa 1970 looks at a key moment in black culture and history and includes works by two dozen artists including Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Binion, Blackburn, Elizabeth Catlett-Mora, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Ed Clark, Beauford Delaney, Samuel Fosso, Sam Gilliam, Hammons, Senga Nengudi, Betye Saar, Malick Sidibé and Frank Stewart.

Circa 1970 is organized by Lauren Haynes, former Associate Curator, Permanent Collection, at The Studio Museum in Harlem and now Curator, Contemporary Art, at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
