30 Americans Henry R. Luce Gallery and Clare Boothe Luce Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art Feb 22 – June 21, 2020 Honolulu Museum of Art presents the celebrated exhibition 30 Americans, featuring works by 30 contemporary artists connected through their African-American cultural history. The exhibition includes some of the most recognized and influential figures in the art world from the past four decades such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Kehinde Wiley. These artists create compelling works that refuse to play it safe, taking risks with pieces that are bold, vibrant, provocative, and sometimes confrontational. The presentation of 30 Americans in Hawaii brings a unique, multi-cultural perspective to themes explored in the exhibition. The museum has developed a slate of public programs in consultation with community members, designed to encourage thoughtful feedback and provide a venue for further discussion around building respect for diversity within our interconnected global world. Open everyday except Mondays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
