inHarlem: Kevin Beasley at Morningside Park opens August 24
Aug 25, 2016 – Jul 25, 2017
inHarlem: Kevin Beasley features Who’s Afraid to Listen to Red, Black and Green?, and will transform a section of Morningside Park into a stage. Beasley will install a trio of large-scale sculptures he refers to as “acoustic mirrors,” incorporating his signature found materials. Each sculpture will feature one of the colors of the African-American flag in the form of found red, black, or green T-shirts cast in resin. The acoustic mirrors will enable a variety of planned performances and encourage impromptu use by members of the Harlem community. Who’s Afraid to Listen to Red, Black and Green? reflects the artist’s complementary interests in sculpture, sound and community-building, and will create a unique space for both contemplation and conversation.
