Schomburg on Location*
Writing Blackness: Harlem | Paris
On view through August 10, 2014
 
Writing Blackness: Harlem | Paris is an exploration of the Harlem Renaissance through the Schomburg Center collection. The exhibit was inspired by the function of the literary salons as a convening physical space where dialogue and exchange of ideas was fostered among intellectuals and cultural producers. Writing Blackness aims to incite intellectual engagement by making archival materials accessible and ‘activating’ the Schomburg Collection in a living space—literally, a 2 bedroom apartment in an affordable housing, educational and cultural arts mixed-use development. This exhibition is presented as part of No Longer Empty’s site specific art exhibit, If You Build It.

Black and Third World people are expected to educate white people as to our humanity. Women are expected to educate men. Lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world. The oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions. There is a constant drain of energy which might be better used in redefining ourselves and devising realistic scenarios for altering the present and constructing the future.
