For the past fifteen years, Dawoud Bey has been making striking, large-scale color portraits of students at high schools across the United States. Depicting teenagers from a wide economic, social, and ethnic spectrum—and intensely attentive to their poses and gestures—he has created a highly diverse generational group portrait that intentionally challenges teenage stereotypes. Join Bey at Art Chicago to hear him discuss this series, followed by a book signing.
