Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection
Presented by The Helis Foundation and organized by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and The Baltimore Museum of Art
August 18 through December 15, 2018 / O’Shaughnessy Galleries / Snite Museum of Art
Drawing on the Joyner/Giuffrida Collection, this exhibition celebrates modern and contemporary artists of African descent, many of whom were historically overlooked by collectors, critics, scholars, galleries, and museums. A central theme is the power of abstract art as a profound political choice and as a declaration of freedom. These artists resisted not only racist imagery, but also pressure to create positive representations of black Americans.
The Snite Museum of Art is closed Sundays and Mondays. We are open Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursdays until 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, noon-5 p.m.
