The institution's press release follows:
Art on the Stoop: Sunset Screenings
September 9 – November 8, 2020, starts at 6 pm
Brooklyn Museum Plaza
NOTE: Screenings may be cancelled because of inclement weather.
We invite Brooklyn Museum visitors, neighbors, and passersby to an outdoor exhibition of major video artworks by artists in our collection, as well as key loans, exploring themes of power and uncertainty, distance and loss, and history’s hand in our present times. The artworks are presented in evening screenings on the Museum plaza—our “front stoop”—providing a safe place to gather, rest, and encounter art, while also acknowledging the critical role that public spaces play for idea-sharing, community-building, and democracy.
Art on the Stoop: Sunset Screenings is presented Wednesdays through Sundays, starting at 6 pm, and is approximately one and a half hours in length. Videos with captioning will be shown on a large-format LED screen placed above the tiered seating near the Museum’s fountain, allowing for socially distanced viewing.
From October 14 to November 8, screenings feature the work of Adama Delphine Fawundu, Jeffrey Gibson, Susan Janow, Lorraine O’Grady, and Howardena Pindell, as well as an excerpt from Question Bridge: Black Males, by Hank Willis Thomas and Chris Johnson with Bayeté Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair.
