Solidary and Solitary- The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection

Apr 24 - Jul 26, 2020

Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection presents over 30 important selections from the collection of Pamela J. Joyner and Alfred J. Giuffrida, highlighting the pivotal role that artists of African descent have played in developing the discourse of abstract art from the 1940s to the present. Solidary & Solitary embodies a historical narrative that includes some of the most iconic artists associated with the discourse around abstraction from Norman Lewis, Mel Edwards and Sam Gilliam to Mark Bradford, Leonardo Drew, Glenn Ligon, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, among others. The exhibition celebrates this intergenerational achievement while encapsulating how abstraction developed from modernism into a crucial strategy for social change and a tool for political and individual autonomy.
