Thelma Golden: How art gives shape to cultural change

Thelma Golden, curator at the Studio Museum in Harlem, talks through three recent shows that explore how art examines and redefines culture. The "post-black" artists she works with are using their art to provoke a new dialogue about race and culture -- and about the meaning of art itself. Opening minds and showcasing new voices -- it's all part of the job description for Studio Museum in Harlem executive director Thelma Golden.
