“Emory Douglas: Black Panther” includes a wide variety of Douglas’s work done while a member of the Black Panther Party. Curated by the Los Angeles artist Sam Durant, whose work often deals with political and cultural subjects in American history, the show includes approximately 165 posters, newspapers, and prints dating from 1967–76.

Durant met Emory Douglas in 2002 and began working on a book of Douglas’s work, which resulted in a monograph published in 2007. Two years later Durant curated “Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas” at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, which serves as a model for the exhibition at the New Museum.

The presentation of “Emory Douglas: Black Panther” at the New Museum is organized by Laura Hoptman, Kraus Family Senior Curator with Amy Mackie, Curatorial Assistant.

Station 4 is proud to present the art of Emory Douglas, former Minister of Culture of The Black Panther Party, by introducing three historic propaganda art pieces originally published in the Black Panther newspaper in 1970 and 1971.

The featured limited edition art pieces are the first of a twelve print series and the images have never before been available to the public as art prints.
