The alumni list of the Studio Museum in Harlem’s artist-in-residence program reads like a who’s who of the contemporary black canon.... And the program is breaking new ground of its own, with the announcement on Wednesday of its 2019-20 cohort, the most experimental in many years. Two of the three artists work in performance. And one works partly in cyberspace. The third artist is the painter Naudline Pierre, 30, based in Brooklyn, whose mystical style draws on medieval and Renaissance religious art, William Blake-style esoterica and Caribbean influences.
