Earthseed is a solo exhibition of recent work by artist-in-residence Tiffany Smith. Working across various media, the site-specific and self-reflexive installation critically engages with strategies for survival sourced from inherited ancestral knowledge, specifically from the Caribbean and its diaspora. Using concepts set forth in Octavia Butler's prophetic novel Parable of the Sower as a guide, the exhibition presents a collection of observations and research on various natural allies and traditional practices that provide care, contribute to survival, and provide resources  for moving forward through physically, emotionally, and spiritually challenging realities.

Starting at the young age of fifteen, Brooklyn born photographer Jamel Shabazz identified early on the core subject of his lifelong investigation: the men and women, young and old, who invest the streets of New York with a high degree of theater and style, mixing traditions and cultures. Despite following a celebrated tradition of street photography that includes Gordon Parks, Garry Winogrand, and Lee Friedlander, it is to his credit that Shabazz has been one of the first photographers to realize the joyous, infectious potential of youth culture in neighborhoods such as Red Hook, Brownsville, Flatbush, Fort Greene, Harlem, Manhattan’s Lower East Side and the Grand Concourse section of the Bronx. A formidable archive of New York’s communities in the outer boroughs, this exhibition pays homage to Shabazz’s illustrious career of over forty years documenting the vibrant interaction of New Yorkers with their neighborhoods.
