Question Bridge: Black Males
January 21–July 8, 2012
QUESTION BRIDGE is an innovative video installation created by Chris Johnson and artists Hank Willis Thomas in collaboration with Bayeté Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair after traveling around the country interviewing 150 Black men in eleven cities. The exhibit was on view simultaneously at the Oakland Museum of California, the Brooklyn Museum, the Chastain Art Center in Atlanta, and Salt Lake City Arts Center.
The identity for this project had already been developed, and I served as lead designer on the project, tasked with translating the existing concepts into the gallery spaces.

The exhibit spanned two separate rotating spaces in the GALLERY OF CALIFORNIA ART. Overall approach was minimal, with stark white cut vinyl text atop entirely black walls.
Multiple monitors, meticulously timed, provided a "conversation" format for the media streams on display.
