The MET is celebrating the Harlem Renaissance

This week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will open a groundbreaking new exhibition. Entitled “The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism,” the exhibition comprises 160 works which explore the complex portrayal of modern life by Black artists, from in 1920’s Harlem to the Great Migration, “when millions of African Americans began to move away from the segregated rural South.” As radical as it is beautiful, the exhibition is actually the first survey of the subject in New York City since 1987, and establishes the Harlem Renaissance as the first African American-led modern art movement. Head to the MET to view the exhibition from now until July 28th, and find more info here.
