Group Exhibition

Kehinde Wiley features in '30 Americans' Organised by Rubell Family Collection, Miami

'30 Americans' is a touring group exhibition that showcases important contemporary artists from across the United States to explore how American art has shed light on issues of racial, sexual and historical identity. The works on display are aesthetically and thematically diverse, spanning painting, installation, sculpture and videos and created from 1970 to the present day. 

'30 Americans' presents works from three generations of African-American artists collected by the Rubell Museum in Miami, Florida. While the Rubell collection does not encompass a comprehensive representation of African American art in the United States, it provides a sampling of important paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, and installations that reveal some of the complexities of African-American culture. 

The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive 224 page hardcover exhibition catalogue, with essays by Robert Hobbs, Glenn Ligon, Franklin Sirmans, and Michele Wallace. 

Artists in the exhibition include Nina Chanel Abney, John Bankston, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Robert Colescott, Noah Davis, Leonardo Drew, Renée Green, David Hammons, Barkley L. Hendricks, Rashid Johnson, Glenn Ligon, Kalup Linzy, Kerry James Marshall, Rodney McMillian, Wangechi Mutu, William Pope.L, Rozeal, Gary, Simmons, Xaviera Simmons, Lorna Simpson, Shinique Smith, Henry Taylor, Hank Willis Thomas, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, Kehinde Wiley and Purvis Young.
