EXHIBITION | “Working Together: Louis Draper and the Kamoinge Workshop” @ Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond | Feb. 1-June 14, 2020
In 1963, Richmond-born Louis H. Draper helped create the Kamoinge Workshop, a collective of black photographers in New York who approached their work as a form of art. Focusing on the first 20 years of the group, this exhibition presents more than 180 photographs by 15 early members, including Anthony Barboza, Adger Cowans, Roy DeCarava, Louis Draper, Beuford Smith, Ming Smith, and Shawn Walker. A new exhibition catalog accompanies the show.
