Reimagining History: Dawoud Bey in conversation with Jason Moran and Sarah Broom
On the occasion of the exhibition Dawoud Bey: An American Project, this conversation brings Dawoud Bey together with artist and musician Jason Moran and writer Sarah M. Broom to discuss their shared interest in specific histories and shared memories as the ground for their respective practices.

Inspired by Bey’s The Birmingham Project (2012)--a tribute to the victims of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, AL in 1963--and Night Coming Tenderly, Black (2019)--which imagines the flight of enslaved Black Americans along the final leg of the Underground Railroad--they reflect on how an artwork can become an act of commemoration and radical reinvention.
