Nari Ward: We the People

August 15, 2019 | 6:30PM - 9:00PM


Join us to celebrate Nari Ward: We the People, an exhibition of sculptures and installations created through the accumulation of staggering amounts of humble materials that are repurposed in surprising ways. Over the past three decades, Ward has addressed topics such as historical memory, political and economic disenfranchisement, racism, and democracy in an effort to express both the tenuousness and the resilience of the artist’s Harlem community—a struggle that remains relatable in communities across the United States.

Nari Ward: We the People is organized by the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, New York, and is curated by Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator; Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson Artistic Director; and Helga Christoffersen, Associate Curator. The exhibition’s presentation at CAMH is coordinated by Dean Daderko, Curator.

Complimentary beverages and beer provided by Lagunitas Brewing Company will be available for select membership levels from 6:30–8PM. Memberships will be available for purchase.
