The Studio Museum in Harlem announced that its summer season of exhibitions and projects will open to the public on July 14, 2016, celebrating the work of multiple generations of modern and contemporary artists of African descent.

This season, the exhibitions focus strongly on the achievements of two venerated artists working in abstraction— the late painter Alma Thomas, and master sculptor Richard Hunt—while also showcasing the diverse approaches of an emerging generation with this year’s artists in residence Jordan Casteel, EJ Hill and Jibade-Khalil Huffman. Also on view are the photographs of the high-school-age artists who have participated in this year’s Expanding the Walls program, and the latest installment of the Museum’s signature Harlem Postcards series. Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, said, “Whether presenting a long-awaited exhibition of the visionary Alma Thomas, offering a focused look into lesser-known aspects of the celebrated sculptor Richard Hunt, delving into a range of contemporary concerns and formal issues with our artists in residence or looking at Harlem through the fresh eyes of our Expanding the Walls participants, these exhibitions will immerse Studio Museum visitors in the depth, complexity, nuance and vigor that run through the work of generations of artists of African descent.” Summer 2016 exhibitions and projects are on view from July 14 through October 30.
