Anthology is a new project by artist Clifford Owens that merges photography, video, and live performance. For this show, Owens’ first exhibition at a New York museum, Owens has enlisted the contribution of twenty-six major African-American artists who composed scores —written or graphical instructions for actions— for his performances. Most of these artists, including Kara Walker, Glenn Ligon, Coco Fusco, and Shinique Smith, composed new work specifically for Owens’ show. The result is a highly personal and historic take on African American performance.
