30 Americans (October 1, 2011–February 12, 2012) is a wide-ranging survey of work by many of the most important African American artists of the last three decades. Selected from the Rubell Family Collection, the exhibition brings together seminal figures such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and David Hammons with younger and emerging artists such as Kehinde Wiley and Shinique Smith. Often provocative and confrontational, 30 Americans focuses on artistic community as well as issues of racial, sexual, and historical identity in contemporary culture.
