History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence

August 30th –December 9, 2017 

The traveling exhibition “History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence” explores three major themes of Lawrence’s larger oeuvre and specifically focuses on his graphic work. Lawrence’s recording and recollection of African-American and larger African diasporic histories are featured, as well as his vivid observations of the dynamic city life in his native Harlem, New York City. Works in the exhibition span from 1963 to 2000 and include significant complete print portfolios, such as the “Toussaint L’Ouverture” series, amongst others.

“History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence” is organized by SCAD Museum of Art in collaboration with the Jacob and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence Foundation, and is curated by Storm Janse van Rensburg, SCAD head curator of exhibitions.
