The Year Ahead in African American Art: What to See and Do in 2020
by VICTORIA L. VALENTINE on Feb 26, 2020 • 10:58 am5 Comments

THE YEAR IN BLACK ART is off to a fascinating start. In January, Helen Molesworth organized a Noah Davis (1983-2015) exhibition at David Zwirner gallery in New York, a rare look at more than 20 paintings by the late Los Angeles-based artist and founder of the Underground Museum. The Johnson Publishing Company art collection was sold at Swann Auction Galleries, introducing more than 24 new African American artists to the auction market and setting records for an additional 27 artists, according to Swann.

There is much more to come as the year unfolds. Recognizing the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote, a number of institutions are planning exhibitions and events reflecting the historic milestone, none more ambitious than the Baltimore Museum of Art where all of its 2020 programming is focused on women artists, including Mickalene Thomas, Valerie Maynard, SHAN Wallace, and Shinique Smith.
Across the United States, major photography exhibitions are opening featuring Dawoud Bey, Deana Lawson, and Louis Draper and the Kamoinge Workshop. South African photographer Zanele Muholi’s first major UK survey opens at the Tate Modern in April. Solo shows at major institutions are celebrating artists such as Jordan Casteel, Tschabalala Self, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Christina Quarles, and Deborah Roberts, who focus on portraiture and black figures. Huge events are also happening in Bentonville, Ark., with the debut of a new arts space, and New Orleans, where Prospect.5 opens in October.
Following is a selection of more than two dozen important exhibitions, events, and happenings to look forward to in 2020:

What ever you've done, you can no longer post to the kitchen table
It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
