Opening Saturday (Nov. 11) and running through March 10, the Studio Museum in Harlem presents a new exhibition, Fore, featuring 29 emerging artists of African descent living and working in the United States. The fourth installment of the museum’s F series, which included past exhibitions, Freestyle (2001), Frequency (2005–06) and Flow (2008), focuses on bringing “a new generation into the forefront of visual and critical dialogue.”

Among this new generation are several CalArts alumni: Kenyatta Hinkle (Art/Writing MFA 12), Akosua Adoma Owusu (Art, Film/Video MFA 08), Nikki Pressley (Art MFA 08), Sadie Barnette (Art BFA 06), Nicole Miller (Art BFA 05) and Nate Young (Art MFA 09) have work in the exhibition.

Fore makes use of multiple spaces in the museum with performances, screenings, lectures and conversations. From the museum:

The artists in Fore embrace a wide range of media and draw from a number of art-historical strategies, including realist painting, site-responsive projects and incorporation of found objects and materials. Reflecting the artistic, cultural and social changes that have occurred locally and nationally over the past five years, many work in performative, socially engaged and time-based media; others bring twenty-first century perspectives to traditional media, including painting, sculpture and drawing.

To see the complete list of artists, visit the Studio Museum site.
