Studio Museum in Harlem – Artists in Residence 2018 - 2019

While The Studio Museum in Harlem is constructing a new building on the West 125th Street, MoMA PS1 will be presenting the annual ‘Artists – in Residence’ exhibition, in partnership with the Museum of Modern Art.

This year’s exhibition, ‘MOOD’, explores place and time, and their impact on the American identity, culture as well as the past and the present, by using the often trending on social media platforms ‘#Mood’ – used to describe moments.

The exhibition will be featuring works by Allison Janae Hamilton, Tschabalala Self and Sable Elyse Smith. ‘MOOD’ seeks to showcase the artist’s different perceptions of the present day life in the U.S.
