inHarlem: Kevin Beasley features Who’s Afraid to Listen to Red, Black and Green?, and transforms a section of Morningside Park into a stage. Beasley installed a trio of large-scale sculptures he refers to as “acoustic mirrors,” incorporating his signature found materials. Each sculpture features one of the colors of the African-American flag in the form of found red, Black, or green T-shirts cast in resin. The acoustic mirrors enable a variety of planned performances and encourage impromptu use by members of the Harlem community. Who’s Afraid to Listen to Red, Black and Green? reflects the artist’s complementary interests in sculpture, sound and community-building, and will create a unique space for both contemplation and conversation.

inHarlem: Kevin Beasley is located in Morningside Park. The closest entrance is at 113th Street and Morningside Drive.
