For the first time since its exhibition in 1993, the Studio Museum will be presenting conceptual artist Fred Wilson (b. 1954)'s installation Local Color, originally created for the Studio Museum exhibition Artists Respond: The "New World" Question.

Photographs, drawings, sculptures and paintings from the Studio Museum's permanent collection that explore the ways in which certain works are dependent on site, and the viewer's conceptual and perceptual experience of that locale through the artist's intervention.

This collection of over 200 slides documents the artist and avant-garde jazz musician's murals through image and sound, providing an intimate glimpse into the domestic lives of an African-American community on the cusp of cultural transformation. This project marks Aton's first solo museum presentation.

This show takes as a starting point works on paper by twentieth-century painter Beauford Delaney (1901-1975). This cross-generational exhibition examines the relationship between Delaney's paintings and prints made between 1958 and 1969 in Paris and works in the Studio Museum's permanent collection by African-American artists continuing and expanding the project of painterly abstraction.

The Studio Museum presents a site-specific iteration of a suite of projects that respond to American stories about race and DNA by the intermedia artists Mendi and Keith Obadike (both b. 1973).
