Barkley L. Hendricks at the Studio Museum

For those of us who came of age in the urban America of the 1960's and 70's, Hendrick's portraits are a reminder of the period's pride, energy and style. Those years offered an explosion of black expression and thought, culminating in a commercialism within American popular culture, that came to be known as "Blaxploitation."
For the post Malcolm X, X-generation and others untutored in the period, we encourage you to explore the exhibition for what it reveals of individual African-American style, as a reflection of the era's film, music and political culture.
