Plan a trip to explore Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop. On view through March 28, this unprecedented exhibition chronicles the formative years of the Kamoinge Workshop, a collective of Black photographers established in New York City in 1963. Also on view is Salman Toor: How Will I Know. The New York Times calls the exhibition a “brilliant debut” by Salman Toor who “refreshes figurative painting by using it as a means to explore identity.”
