A retrospective of Dawoud Bey’s career over the last 40 years, “An American Project” features around 80 works that represent the renowned photographer’s focus on capturing African American history, underrepresented communities, and themes of identity.

November 7, 2020 - March 14, 2021

A retrospective of Dawoud Bey’s career over the last 40 years, “An American Project” features around 80 works that represent the renowned photographer’s focus on capturing African American history, underrepresented communities, and themes of identity. Organized with the help of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, the exhibition includes works from Bey’s eight major series, spanning back to his earliest street portraits taken in Harlem during the 1970s. In the years since, the photographer has become known for his work on projects like “The Birmingham Project,” a series of portraits of high schoolers across America entitled “Class Pictures, and “Night Coming Tenderly, Black,” which references the Underground Railroad.
