The Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, will present the exhibition “30 Americans,” which focuses on the work completed by several important African-American contemporary artists spanning over 30 years.
The exhibition will channel the role of artistic legacy and community through generations, and the thought behind historical, racial, and sexual identity in contemporary culture. Artists include Jean-Michel Basquiat, Carrie Mae Weems, and iona rozeal brown. The exhibit of 76 drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos debuted at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami on December 3, 2008, where it remained opened for nearly six months.
It will open to the public October 1, 2011 and will close in February 2012. For more information on the exhibit and other related events, visit corcoran.org/30americans.
