The MIT List Visual Arts Center simultaneously presents all three chapters of the group exhibition Colored People Time, a trilogy that the List Center says “builds new narratives and public discourse around the everyday experiences of black people in the United States.”

Presented artists include Aria Dean, Kevin Jerome Everson, Matthew Angelo Harrison, Dave McKenzie, Martine Syms, Sable Elyse Smith, Cameron Rowland, and Pew Fellow Carolyn Lazard.

Colored People Time was originally presented in three parts by the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania with Center support.
