Fences, Sausages, and an Ark Hive: Around Cleveland’s Front International Triennial, Part 2

One of the triennial’s most talked-about offerings was Dawoud Bey’s Night Coming Tenderly, Black (2017), a photo installation that loosely maps the Underground Railroad as it extended from Hudson, Ohio, to Cleveland. Bey’s dark photographs of branches, fences, and lakes hang above pews in St. John’s Episcopal Church, which was itself an Underground Railroad site.
