Since its founding in 1968, the Studio Museum has exhibited work by black artists committed to bearing witness to acts of protest. Now, in an exhibition that takes its name from one of Pope.

L’s “Skin Set” drawings, "Black People Are The Window And The Breaking Of The Window" (2004), the Studio Museum provides a focused look at current and historical expressions of protest through works of art primarily drawn from the Museum’s collection.

"The Window and the Breaking of the Window" includes work by Devin Allen, Alice Attie, Deborah Grant, Steffani Jemison, Kerry James Marshall and more. "The Window and the Breaking of the Window" is organized by Amanda Hunt.
