African American Art Since 1950: Perspectives from the David C. Driskell Center includes works by renowned artists such as Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, and Sam Gilliam and couples them with exciting new visionaries, including Chakaia Booker, Lorna Simpson, and Kara Walker. This exhibition collectively reflects the growing prominence and complexity of the field of African American art over the last 60 years. It honors the legacy of the 1976 exhibition Two Centuries of Black American Art: 1750-1950 curated by Prof. David C. Driskell at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition is divided into three, often overlapping, sections: Politics of Identity in African American Art; Driskell's Circle of Colleagues; and New Voices.

On view in the Main Gallery.
