Question Bridge: Black Males
The clarity and direct engagement of Question Bridge: Black Males both belies and amplifies the complexity and vitality of the subject matter. The work was previously shown at Millbrook in 2018 and is now in the school's permanent collection. The current Warner Gallery exhibition of Question Bridge: Black Males is comprised of five video monitors showing footage of Black men culled from thousands of interviews of hundreds of Black men across America.
Warner Gallery director Sarah MacWright said: “My hope is that this exhibition – Question Bridge: Black Males – becomes a space for our youth to learn from the wisdom of these Black men of all ages. This could be a moment for our white students to experience and learn from these men’s insight and experiences, and for our students of color to hear both divergent and resonant stories from the Black community. And all can be inspired by the way the men model vulnerable conversation and listening. The power of asking a question with real interest in the responses is on full view in this art piece."
