Open Air: Jamel Shabazz

Harvey B. Gantt Center 551 S Tryon S, Charlotte

Photographer Jamal Shabazz is best known for his iconic images of New York City during the 1980s documenting the emerging hip-hop culture. As a Brooklyn insider, Shabazz gained full access and captured city’s street life and burgeoning scene unfiltered. Curator Dexter Wimberly, who has organized exhibitions and programming in galleries and institutions around the world, will lead this Open Air conversation, which explores Shabazz’s passion and perspective on building community through photography.
