Into the Archive Extraordinary Set

Join the waitlist

This collection includes seventy-four titles, of which six are only being offered in our exclusive curated libraries and once sold will not be offered again. This instant library includes the highly rare and collectible Fred Wilson: Objects and InstallationsThe Decade ShowBeads, Body and Soul: Art & Light in the Yoruba Universe, and Chris Ofili: Night and Day among others.

Collected individually, if possible by hunting through rare booksellers and auction sites, these tomes would cost several times the retail offering. This moment to collect some of the literary histories of the Studio Museum is also an opportunity to be a part of its future and to invest in the next half-century and beyond of this ground-breaking, genre-defying community.

Limited to the Exclusive set, Exquisite, and Extraordinary set only
