Detroit Collects: Selections of African American Art from Private Collections
This exhibition, the first at the DIA to feature African American art from several local collectors, features 60 works of art in a variety of media, including paintings, sculptures, photography and more by internationally renowned artists. Highlights include works by Romare Bearden, Nick Cave, Alison Saar, Rashid Johnson and Carrie Mae Weems. The exhibition also features artists with Detroit roots, including Charles McGee, Mario Moore, Tylonn Sawyer, Allie McGhee and others. Their works will be displayed alongside the stories of motivation and passion that drive each collector to acquire African American art, and the ways the art can reflect and affect social change.
The DIA Exhibits 2019 is organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts.
