Perception & Representation: Reframing “Modernity”

Brooklyn Bridge Park – Emily Warren Roebling Plaza

A dialogue between two independent, conceptually entwined projects, by a group of Dutch photographers and by American artist Kennedi Carter.

The Dutch photographers’ work features prominent models of color, in the style of Rembrandt and his contemporaries, to counter the erasure of non-white people throughout Dutch history. Similarly, Carter’s work brings focus to Blackness, belonging, wealth and power, through the visual style of European royalty combined with contemporary Black aesthetics.
