Co-curated by artists and writers Antwaun Sargent and Matt Wycoff, this traveling exhibition highlights the impact of Black artists over the past 25 years. It features marquee names like Rashid Johnson, Kara Walker, and Mickalene Thomas alongside artists of a rising generation (like Chiffon Thomas, whose mixed-media work, A mother who had no mother, is pictured here) in its show of nearly 50 works from the Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art. “At a time when America is wrestling anew with race and racism, and debates about equality and inclusion in the art world have taken on greater urgency, this exhibition assesses how artists today are shaping the way we think about identity, art and history,” says Bernard Lumpkin, who started the collection.
