In conjunction with the exhibition, Renée Cox: A Proof of Being, artist Renée Cox and photographer, historian, educator, and MacArthur grantee Deborah Willis, Ph.D., will discuss their work, shared interests, and the representation of the Black body. Please join us in the Woodhouse Gallery for this unique opportunity to hear two renowned figures in American photography engage in conversation.

Renée Cox: A Proof of Being presents a selection of the best-known and most celebrated photographs produced by the artist since 1992. The exhibition traces the evolution of Cox’s practice through a series of performative self-portraits, demonstrating the ways in which she has reclaimed art historical themes in order to explore notions of womanhood, beauty, and agency.

On view in the exhibition are photographs from some of the artist’s most recognizable bodies of work, including her groundbreaking Yo Mama series (1992–94) and her monumental photograph The Signing(2017). Renée Cox: A Proof of Being also marks the New York premiere of a recent work, the immersive video installation Soul Culture (2022).

Organized by Monique Long, independent curator.

$20 ($18 for Members)
