Dawoud Bey: An American Project

Katy Donoghue

6 September 2021

Titled “An American Project,” a major retrospective of Dawoud Bey’s career is open at The Whitney Museum of American Art through October 3. On view, a total of around 80 works spanning the artist’s 46-year career features photographs from eight of his most notable series. Co-organized by the SFMOMA’s curator of photography, Corey Keller, and The Whitney’s assistant curator, Elisabeth Sherman, viewers will find images spanning the years of 1975—2017, demonstrating Bey’s technical mastery of his medium and his commitment to creating an accurate representational dialogue on African American history, contemporary society, and politics—seen through images like A Woman Waiting in the Doorway, captured in Harlem, NY in 1976, portraits from the 2006 “Class Pictures” series, and images from the 2012 “Birmingham Project.”
