Details:This exhibition celebrates major acquisitions made possible by funds from an anonymous donor to purchase work by contemporary Black artists based in the United States. Acutely aware of the underrepresentation of works by artists of color in museum collections, she offered to support acquisitions over a multiyear period, culminating in this special presentation of work by twelve artists. Her motivations were also personal: as the descendent of slaveholders, she was eager to support art that sparks critical thinking and conversations around race. A forthcoming catalogue will also be published to foster new scholarship and amplify the voices of emerging writers and curators of color. Assembly includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, textiles, and a monumental print, all produced between 1980 and 2019. Although diverse in style and subject matter, many of the works have ties to Southern history and reveal what scholar Saidiya Hartman refers to as “the long afterlife of slavery.”
