30 Americans


While working at the Cincinnati Art Museum, I co-curated, with Rehema C. Barber, its presentation of the traveling exhibition 30 Americans. The show highlights a wide range of cultural backgrounds and life experiences as expressed by contemporary African-American artists, including Nick Cave, Kara Walker, Kehinde Wiley, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mickalene Thomas, and Glenn Ligon.

Paintings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and installations from these and other influential artists filled the largest temporary-exhibition galleries and spread throughout the museum. The show was primarily drawn from the Rubell Family Collection, Miami and included works in the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection.
