Black Art in America, from the Harlem Renaissance to Presidential Portraits
Wangechi Mutu’s new sculptures decorating the MET’s facade put a modern spin on an ancient architectural element, gallerists such as Mariane Ibrahim are bringing new artists into widespread acclaim, and artists such as Titus Kaphar are energizing their communities with programs to educate and inspire young creators. These are just some of the exciting ways in which Black artists are shaping today’s art market.
We’re excited to introduce Art Insights: In Depth, a new series where we take a closer look at important art trends, topics and more. In our first webinar, we’ll take an art historical dive into the history and development of Black art in America from the 1920s to today, sharing the works of some of the talented Black artists who have had a significant impact on art history, as well as others who are energizing the art world’s present and future.
