This exhibition highlights the artworks and intergenerational relationships of Romare Bearden, Girma Berta, Chakaia Booker, Peter Bradley, Erica Deeman, Charles Gaines, Dan Halter, Lyle Ashton Harris, Mildred Howard, Margo Humphrey, Julie Mehretu, Kamau Amu Patton, Faith Ringgold, William Rogers, Betye Saar, Raymond Saunders, Lorna Simpson, Hervé Télémaque, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, Charles White, and Fred Wilson. Most of the artwork was produced by Black artists from Africa and its diasporas, drawn from the permanent collections and archives of BAMPFA and the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology. However, crucially, this exhibition does not intend to define Black art or to limit Black artists to a single aesthetic. Rather, the exhibition foregrounds the richness and diversity that becomes visible when blackness is taken as the norm rather than the exception, proposing the museum as a space of care for relationships of justice, equity, and inclusion.
