This temporary display from the permanent collection and area private collections is inspired, in part, by the exhibition, 30 Americans. Organized by the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, Florida, 30 Americans is a selection of works by African-American artists. It is a powerful testament to representation, artistically and socially, and even more so as it travels throughout the United States. Our display, 31 Americans, looks to expand on this idea while questioning the use of the word “American” to describe only people from the United States. The display includes artists in North, Central, and South America of diverse descent.
Artists include Sama Alshaibi, Sanford Biggers, Beverly Buchanan, Celia Calderón, Enrique Chagoya, Mel Chin, Robert Colescott, Binh Danh, Jose Dávila, Darío Escobar, William Hawkins, Rashid Johnson, Brian Jungen, Lorna Simpson, Glenn Ligon, Augusto Marin, Kerry James Marshall, Paul D. Miller, Ernesto Neto, Pablo O’Higgins, Catherine Opie, Yoko Ono, Tony Ortega, William Pope.L, Deborah Roberts, Juan Antonio Roda, Jean Claude Sévère, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, Paul Valadez, and Kara Walker.
