Clifford Owens: Anthology

On view November 13, 2011—March 12, 2012

For his first exhibition at a New York museum, Clifford Owens (American, b. 1971) presents a new project Anthology, which is comprised of photography, video, and live performance.

Anthology features performances scores—written or graphical instructions for actions—that Owens solicited from a multigenerational group of African-American artists. Twenty-six major artists have contributed scores, nearly all of whom composed new works specifically for Owens and his project.
