Currents and Constellations: Black Art in Focus

Cleveland Museum of Art / Cleveland / Art

“The most important work,” the Baltimore Museum of Art director, Christopher Bedford, told AIR MAIL in 2020, “the most relevant, topical, timely, rich, complex contemporary art being made today, is being made by black American artists and artists of the diaspora.” At the Cleveland Museum of Art, works from emerging and mid-career Black artists will be spotlighted singly, placed in thematic groupings, and temporarily introduced into the permanent collection. Dawoud Bey, Richard Hunt, Sanford Biggers, Lorna Simpson, and Jack Whitten are among the artists included in “Currents and Constellations.” —E.C.
