Bearing Witness as Protest with AFROPUNK and Harlem Stage

Inspired by two current Studio Museum exhibitions, The Window and the Breaking of the Window and Circa 1970, Bearing Witness as Protest will explore current and historical expressions of political dissent in contemporary artistic practice. The evening will begin with a guided walkthrough of the exhibitions followed by a public dialogue with exhibiting artist Oasa DuVerney and Jess Krug of Harlem CopWatch and moderated by writer Chaédria LaBouvier. Together they will explore how the act of bearing witness might be considered a form of protest, as well as the collective actions necessary to forge the path forward.

This special program is presented in collaboration with Harlem Stage as a part of AFROPUNK The Takeover-Harlem, a week-long series of events featuring live musical performances, film screenings, comedy shows, jam sessions and frank discussions on identity, art and protest.

This program is free with museum admission, which is a suggested donation of $7 for adults and $3 for students and seniors. All seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
