Derrick Adams: Patrick Kelly, The Journey at Studio Museum in Harlem, 144 West 125th Street by 7th Avenue. Derrick Adams: Patrick Kelly, The Journey is an inHarlem project presented by The Studio Museum in Harlem in partnership with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the New York Public Library’s Countee Cullen Library branch. The exhibition is based on artist Derrick Adams’s extensive research into the archive of the influential African-American fashion designer Patrick Kelly (1954–1990), housed at the Schomburg Center.
At the center of Patrick Kelly, The Journey is Adams’s “Mood Board” series, a new body of work responding to Kelly’s legacy as a formalist who imbued social context and humor into his creations. More details on the Studio Museum site: LINK
