Curator's Perspective: Dr. Adrienne L. Childs on Riffs and Relations

Riffs and Relations: African American Artists and the European Modernist Tradition presents works by African American artists of the 20th and 21st centuries together with examples by the early 20th century European artists with whom they engaged. This exhibition explores the rich, multifaceted, and sustained connections and frictions around modernism in the work of artists such as Romare Bearden, Robert Colescott, Renee Cox, Titus Kaphar, Wassily Kandinsky, Norman Lewis, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Faith Ringgold, Hank Willis Thomas, and Carrie Mae Weems, among others.

We are very grateful to you for your continued support of Riffs and Relations: African American Artists and the European Modernist Tradition and we all long to return to the museum to see your important loans in our special exhibition.  While we can’t explore the galleries in person, we have been developing virtual programming relating to this exhibition. We would like to share with you a virtual tour of Riffs led by guest curator, Dr. Adrienne L. Childs.

Watch the virtual tour HERE.

The exhibition has been extended through January 3, 2021.
