Video screening and conversation: Thursday, July 13, 6 –8pm

Curated by Souleo, independent curator and Manager of Public Programs, Newark Museum

Artist Dianne Smith juxtaposes images of Harlem from the Schomburg Center archives with photographs she has taken of the neighborhood over the past 20 years. The result is a video remix, graphic mash-up, motion picture collage fusion blurring the lines between the past, future, and now of Harlem’s landscape, culture, and people.
