30 Americans presents works by 30 important and influential contemporary African American artists. From the canonical to the cutting-edge, these artists explore identity against a backdrop of pervasive stereotyping-of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class-addressing intersectional politics in unique and powerful ways.
Drawn from the exceptional Rubell Family Collection, this special exhibition includes works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Barkley L. Hendricks, Kerry James Marshall, Wangechi Mutu, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Kehinde Wiley.
