125th: Time in Harlem
125th: Time in Harlem examines Harlem's paradox of place: the tension between the everyday reality of its streets - often contentious, always complex - and the cultural brand it has established in our collective imagination.
The project includes the book, exhibitions, and a series of public programs. The project's aim is to extend the experience generated by the photographs through exchange and public participation at events and forums. Our hope is to encourage reflection on the past and future of Harlem, New York and other urban centers in rapid flux, and to explore the roles that artists and cultural thinkers play in imagining and shaping our communities.
