‘In Our Season of Discontent, Count It All Joy’ Join The Photoville Festival In Harlem

In partnership with the 9th Annual Photoville Festival in NYC, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the outdoor fence exhibition, In Our Season of Discontent, Count It All Joy.

The display is nestled inside NYC parks as a respite during social distancing measures. The event opens now, ends November 29, 2020, at  St. Nicholas Park (133rd Street, 139th Street and St. Nicholas Ave inside the park) at Jackie Robinson Park (Bradhurst Ave. & 145th Street)

Patrons can still connect with various artists’ work through archival materials from our Photographs and Prints Division, which explore the Black vernacular through images of gatherings, essential workers, pioneers, genius, and joy.

Offering a view of Black life that resists the present and historical record of systemic racism and violence perpetrated against Black communities.
