Question Bridge: Black Males
September 29, 2017–February 25, 2018
When Question Bridge: Black Males opened at OMCA in 2012, the five-screen video installation—which features some 150 Black men posing and answering various questions—was a revelation. Now, five years later, Question Bridge: Black Males has returned to the Museum, raising ever-more timely questions about what connects and divides Black men in the United States. This groundbreaking and poignant work, now part of the Museum’s permanent collection (it has also been acquired by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Brooklyn Museum) offers profound insights into the Black male experience in our country.
