About the exhibition:
30 Americans showcases works by some of the most significant African American artists of the last four decades. This ground-breaking exhibition explores race, gender, and historical identity in contemporary context while highlighting diverse media, subject matter, and perspectives. Artists included here represent the core of an expanding number of talented individuals who are contributing their voices to the history of art in this country. Many of the works on view reveal not only the country’s changing view of race and class over the last 200 years, but also address the persistence of racism, violence, and marginalization in America today.
30 Americans is drawn from the acclaimed holdings of the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, Florida.
