Inquiries

by Ashley-Simone McKenzie

Inquiries is a series questioning the black experience in the NFL, NHL, WNBA, WTA, MLB, and U.S. Soccer. Drawing inspiration from issues regarding racial injustices, and black representation in amateur and professional sports.

The exhibition explores the present and future landscape of sports for black athletes. Utilizing the artistic styles of graffiti and street art to welcome an educational discussion on the framing question: What happens when prejudice, and racism towards athletes aren't discussed or condemned?

Inquiries opens on Thursday, March 7th, at NYU’s Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport (7 E 12th Street, New York, NY).
