Dawoud Bey: An American Project

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Since the beginning of his career, Dawoud Bey (American, born 1953) has used his camera to depict communities and histories that have largely remained underrepresented or even unseen. This full-scale retrospective highlights the artist's commitment over the course of his four-decade career to portraying the black subject and African-American history in a manner that is at once direct and poetic, and immediate and symbolic.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Dawoud Bey: An American Project :

Co-organized by SFMOMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, this full-scale retrospective considers the four-decade career of legendary American photographer Dawoud Bey. Known for “at once direct and poetic” images of African American life and history. On Thursday, February 13, Bey will be in conversation with renowned UC Berkeley scholar Dr. Leigh Raiford – do not miss it.
