Join exhibiting artists Kambui Olujimi and Andre D. Wagner for an exhibition tour and art-making workshop inspired by Tina Campt's Listening to Images. In this book, Campt “looks beyond what one usually sees” and explores a way of listening closely to photography, engaging with lost archives of historically dismissed photographs of black subjects taken throughout the black diaspora.

This workshop will begin with a tour of the exhibition Future Continuous, where Olujimi and Wagner will talk about their work and process. Following the tour will be a listening and drawing workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring and discuss personal photographs, inviting others to interpret alternative meanings. Art-making supplies will be provided. 

George Bruce Library is accessible by elevator for visitors who use wheelchairs and other forms of assistance for walking. For further questions about accessibility, contact Library Manager Junelle Carter-Bowman at 212.662.9727.

This Studio Salon is part of the Museum's ongoing partnership with George Bruce Library and is presented as part of inHarlem, The Studio Museum in Harlem's initiative designed to explore innovative ways to work in the community while taking the Museum beyond its own walls.
