Robert Pruitt: Women features a selection of the artist’s large-format, mixed-media portraits of culturally complex and highly evocative women. This is first solo museum exhibition in New York for the Houston-based artist. Things in Themselves: Artists in Residence 2012–13 debuts new work from Steffani Jemison, Jennifer Packer and Cullen Washington Jr., the most recent participants in the Museum’s yearlong residency program. No Filter: Expanding the Walls 2013 features another group of resident artists, the participants in the Museum’s acclaimed program for high school students, Expanding the Walls: Making Connections Between Photography, History and Community. Highlights from the Studio Museum’s permanent collection take center stage in Body Language, an exhibition exploring artistic intersections of the human form and the written word. Also on view will be VideoStudio: Long Takes, the latest iteration of the Museum’s signature series of time-based work.

Joining these exhibitions is the latest installment in the ongoing project Harlem Postcards, which this season features mailable perspectives from Corin Hewitt, Lisa Oppenheim, Justine Reyes and Paulette Henk—all available free to Museum visitors. The Museum will also host a wide variety of exhibition-related programs and activities for people of all ages, from dancing under the stars at the popular Uptown Fridays to engaging exhibition tours led by teenage Expanding the Walls participants.
