02.Jun.2010 The Black List
The Black List Project, a collaboration between photographer/filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and critic Elvis Mitchell will be on view at The Paley Center for Media throughout Public Art Party. Using a combination of media including photographs, video and the web, The Black List Project is a provocative and engaging exploration of what it means to be an African American today. The exhibition, on view at The Paley until June 6, 2010, features a series of portraits by Greenfield-Sanders, a book, an interactive website, and the three-part documentary series created for HBO. The documentary’s interviews capture a rare glimpse into the lives of public figures we may think we know, and provide an insightful groundwork upon which to build a conversation about race in contemporary culture. In The Black List, Greenfield-Sanders and Mitchell have used both traditional and new media as a frame to examine questions that are deeply rooted in our history, but also incredibly relevant to our world today.
