Studio Salon: Titus Kaphar and Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad Discuss The New Jim Crow

  • The Studio Museum in Harlem 144 W 125th St New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

Studio Salon is the Museum's literary society that invites visitors to participate in an ongoing series of talks, book clubs and writing workshops inspired by our exhibitions and aimed at encouraging self-expression and critical dialogue. This special iteration of Studio Salon is presented in partnership with The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and will be livestreamed to reach a broader audience. Recreating the intimacy and candid nature of a studio visit, exhibiting artist Titus Kaphar will be joined by Schomburg director Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad in discussing The Jerome Project, his exhibition of small-scale works that directly engage contemporary social issues, particularly the criminal justice system and prison-industrial complex. In this conversation, Kaphar and Muhammad will explore Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness as integral source material that informed the artist's personal research and evolving modes of representation for this very timely and important project.
