Schomburg Center Teen Curators Pick Syncretic Vibrations As Exhibition In Harlem

Join the 2017-2018 Schomburg Center Teen Curators in celebration as we present our third annual Teen Curators Exhibition, Syncretic Vibrations: Exploring the Mosaic of Blackness Through the Melville Herskovits Collection. This exhibit engages in a call and response dialogue with the work of anthropologist Melville J. Herskovits, who was an American anthropologist who helped establish African and African-American studies in American academia. Herskovits is known for exploring the cultural continuity from African cultures as expressed in African-American communities.

Through research, discussion, and creative investigation, the Schomburg’s Teen Curators have reflected on the odyssey of blackness while reflecting upon the question and answers to “who controls how a people are studied, represented and therefore remembered?” The exhibition features an array of student produced mixed-media works poignantly juxtaposed with archival materials from the Schomburg Center’s collections.
