Art History From Home: Dawoud Bey: An American Project
This series of online talks by the Whitney’s Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows highlights works in the Museum's collection and recent exhibitions to illuminate critical topics in American art from 1900 to the present. During each thirty-minute session, participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat. Sessions are available live only, Tuesdays at 6pm and Thursdays at 12pm, but topics and speakers do periodically repeat. Check whitney.org for more sessions added regularly.

This session explores the work of photographer Dawoud Bey who uses his camera to visualize communities and histories that have been underrepresented. From his tender and perceptive portraits, to more recent work that takes a historic turn, Bey’s images pose existential questions that suggest not just a kind of personal expression but the power and possibility of bearing witness through photography.
