‘On Their Own Terms' displays the work of 37 African-American artists, from the nineteenth century to the present day. The exhibition displays the work of well-known artists, but also talents who have been hitherto overlooked. The title comes from conversations about who gets to be an artist, and how now well-known artists like Charles Porter and Robert Duncanson were making work despite experiencing great hardship as black artists.
