30 Americans Plus...The Region

June 6 - July 8, 2016



30 Americans Plus...The Region

The exhibit 30 Americans at the Cincinnati Art Museum showcases works by many of the most important African American artists of the last three decades. This provocative exhibition focuses on issues of racial, sexual, and historical identity in contemporary culture while exploring the powerful influence of artistic legacy and community across generations.

As a companion to this exhibition, the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the DAAP Galleries, University of Cincinnati will present “30 Americans Plus….The Region”—a two part exhibition that will recognize the diverse range of work offered by African American artists from our community. This exhibition will feature a wide range of media, materials, and perspectives from current practitioners as well as some of the seminal figures of the past three decades. The work exhibited by these accomplished regional artists help to contribute to the conversation of the African American experience, heritage, and the present state of the arts within the region as a whole.
