To support The Harlem Renaissance and Trans-Atlantic Modernism at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This project foregrounds the work of Black artists throughout the United States to demonstrate the diverse influences and approaches to portraying Black subjects that came to characterize the “New Negro” movement in the 1920s through the 1940s. Not only does this project examine the work of US-based artists, it also presents works by Black expatriates working in Europe and shows their oeuvre alongside portrayals of the international African diaspora by their European and Caribbean peers. A scholarly exhibition catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
