An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until July 31, 2019
This exhibition, on view from March 30–July 31, 2019, examines nearly 100 years of art created in Harlem, exploring the neighborhood’s enduring influence on American culture from the Great Migration and Harlem Renaissance to the present day, capturing periods of community growth, ownership, pride, and new styles, as well as redevelopment and encroaching gentrification. Harlem: In Situ brings into dialogue works from 20th century masters including Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Aaron Douglas, William H. Johnson, and Jacob Lawrence, with groundbreaking contemporary artists such as Dawoud Bey, Jordan Casteel, Lorraine O’Grady, Sherrill Roland, and Kehinde Wiley, in an effort to understand the myriad creative processes born of sustained engagement with this distinctive place.
The Addison Gallery of American Art is open to the public from Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Sunday 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays, national holidays, December 24, and the month of August.
