New York City, NY
Photo Studio transforms The Studio Museum in Harlem’s galleries into an active photography studio. Over the course of two weeks, Museum staff will work in view of the public to create high-quality digital photographs of some of the largest works in the Museum’s permanent collection of nearly two thousand works of art.
Maintaining the Museum’s commitment to the preservation, accessibility, and study of work by artists of African descent, Photo Studio also allows for a rare behind-the-scenes look into the work that occurs at a museum. Staff and visitors alike will have the opportunity to reflect on the depth and breadth of the Museum’s collection. Visitors will have the chance to see art handlers installing work in a variety of media, with rarely seen, large-scale, or technically complex artworks periodically on view in the main gallery.
