PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE
ALVIN AILEY DANCE FOUNDATION
Go Home is the inaugural SN37 exhibition by Tyrell Hampton, a photographer & filmmaker whose work evokes a sense of movement and life and captures subjects amidst moments of joy and unbridled exuberance.
The show, which features a primarily black and white selection of Hampton’s images of partygoers, is a nod to his initiation into city life as a teenager first experiencing New York City. Speaking to his own experience, the work evokes a fantastical world once only available to him through movies and television, which gradually became reality as his perspective shifted from that of a voyeur to a participant. The images, created between 2016 and the present, celebrate community in a poignant commentary on our human need for connection. Hampton, who grew up dancing, likens moving through the dark room of a club to creating choreography: anticipating the moves of those around you and responding with your own rhythms. See a sample of the photographs on exhibit below.
The proceeds from the sale of select work from Hampton’s show will be donated to the Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation to provide vital scholarship assistance dedicated for male students to receive superior training at The Ailey School.
