Morningside Park

Aug 25, 2016 – Jul 25, 2017

Opening: Thursday, August 25, 5 – 7pm at Marcus Garvey Park, Harlem (Enter on Madison Avenue and 123rd Street)

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.

inHarlem: Kevin Beasley is organized by The Studio Museum in Harlem’s Assistant Curator, Amanda Hunt and in partnership with the NYC Parks along with the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.
