Currents and Constellations: Black Art in Focus puts art from the CMA’s permanent collection in conversation with a vanguard of emerging and mid-career Black artists, as each explores the fundaments of art making, embracing and challenging art history. Intimate in scale, yet broad in scope, Currents and Constellations illuminates singular works created by Black artists working in the United States to broaden visitors’ sense of Black artistic production. In the focus gallery, five thematic groupings represent a multifaceted star, with each theme providing an accessible window into a complex idea. Then, to generate new conversations with other areas of the collection, works will be temporarily introduced in four “satellites” in the CMA’s permanent collection galleries, including American painting and sculpture, Abstract Expressionism, German Expressionism, and contemporary art.
