TACOMA – 30 Americans made its West Coast debut at Tacoma Art Museum (TAM) on September 24, 2016 and will be on view through January 15, 2017. This critically acclaimed, nationally traveling exhibition showcases paintings, photographs, installations, videos and sculptures by prominent African American artists who have emerged since the 1970s as trailblazers in the contemporary art scene. Visitors will see 45 works drawn from the Rubell Family Collection in Miami – one of the largest private contemporary art collections in the world.
The artists weave evocative themes of race and identity in America, the struggle for civil rights, history, gender, popular culture and media imagery through many of the works. The exhibition invites viewers to consider multiple perspectives and to reflect upon the similarities and differences of their own experiences and identities.
A selection of exciting programs supports the exhibition, ranging from spoken word performance to film screenings to community roundtables and more. Programs are described below, and further details are available at www.TacomaArtMuseum.org/events.Print This Post
