Drawn from the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, 30 Americans features an incredible “Who’s Who” list from among the most acclaimed Black artists of our time, including Nick Cave, Glenn Ligon, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley. There is no one monolithic experience represented by these African American artists; this exhibition offers an intersectional series of varying gender, sexuality, and class perspectives.
Traveling throughout the United States for a decade with each museum tailoring its own selection of works, the exhibition has helped fuel the drive to fill historical gaps in American museum collections.
Organized by the Rubell Museum.
