KAHLIL JOSEPH — FLY PAPER

KAHLIL JOSEPH—SHADOW PLAY, Joseph’s first solo show in New York City, features the premiere of FLY PAPER (2017), a film installation that pays tribute to Roy DeCarava (1919–2009)—photographer of jazz and Harlem life—and “extends DeCarava’s virtuosity with chiaroscuro effects to the moving image and brings together a range of film and digital footage to contemplate the dimensions of past, present, and future in Harlem and New York City.”*

 

KAHLIL JOSEPH—SHADOW PLAY, through January 7.

NEW MUSEUM, 235 Bowery, New York City.
