Kehinde Wiley in '30 Americans' at Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Missouri, USA

30 Americans at Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Missouri brings together more than eighty works by influential artists from the Rubell Family Collection based in Miami, Florida. Featuring paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, photography and video, the exhibition presents the perspectives of 30 African American artists who have helped to shape dialogues relating to race, history, beauty and identity in contemporary America.

30 Americans was first staged in 2008 at the Rubell's warehouse in Miami, and has since travelled to museums throughout the USA, with each given the opportunity to curate a unique exhibition from the Collection's extensive holdings. This exhibition includes work by artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Carrie Mae Weems, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Rashid Johnson, Kara Walker, Hank Willis Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley, including his oil on canvas work, 'Sleep' (2008).
