DC | Exhibition Tour – ‘Afro-Atlantic Histories’ at the National Gallery of Art, with curators Kanitra Fletcher and Molly Donovan

April 26 @ 10:00 am

Artwork by Zanele Muholi

Please join us for a tour of Afro-Atlantic Histories at the National Gallery of Art, led by curators Kanitra Fletcher and Molly Donovan.

For centuries, artists have told and retold the complex histories of the African Diaspora. The exhibition Afro-Atlantic Histories explores this enduring legacy through a wide range of works of art inspired by the historical experiences and cultural formations of Black and African people since the 17th century. More than 130 powerful works, including paintings, sculpture, photographs, and time-based media by artists from Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean, bring these narratives to life. This exhibition was initially presented as Histórias Afro-Atlânticas in 2018 by the Museu de Arte de São Paulo in Brazil.

For additional information about the exhibition and related programming, visit the National Gallery of Art website.

This program is free for ArtTable members and non-members.

Fletcher is responsible for guiding the museum’s collection of African American art. Prior to joining the National Gallery, Fletcher worked at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where she oversaw the presentation of such major traveling exhibitions as Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power and Odyssey: Jack Whitten Sculpture, and began the co-organization of the U.S. iteration of Afro-Atlantic Histories, an exhibition that was first conceived and presented by the Museum de Arte São Paulo in Brazil. The exhibition was displayed at the MFA, Houston in fall 2021/winter 2022 and is now open at the National Gallery. Fletcher has published essays in books and journals and presented research at international conferences on Afro-diasporic art as it relates to politics of the body, gender, and labor as well as aesthetics and the avant-garde.

Together with NGA colleagues Kanitra Fletcher and Steven Nelson, Molly has co-curated Afro-Atlantic Histories which opened on April 10, 2022, at the National Gallery following its debut at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and an earlier iteration in São Paulo, Brazil. Donovan’s notable recent projects include the monographic exhibition of work by Lynda Benglis, drawn from the National Gallery’s collections which just closed in January, and the major show featuring British sculptor Rachel Whiteread, on which she collaborated with Tate Britain, where it opened in London in 2017 before traveling to Vienna, Austria, Washington, DC, and ultimately to the Saint Louis Art Museum in 2019. Additional exhibitions that Donovan organized include In the Tower: Barbara Kruger (2016 – 2017); Warhol: Headlines, which opened in Washington in 2011 before it travelled to Frankfurt, Rome, and Pittsburgh; and Christo and Jeanne Claude’s in the Vogel Collection in Washington and La Jolla in 2002. In 2016, Donovan inaugurated thematic installations for the contemporary collection of the National Gallery, including “Bodies of Work,” “Flow,” and “Markers and Signs.”  Her acquisitions for the National Gallery of Art have reshaped its collection to include more works by living artists, particularly women and people of color. Molly has written and lectured on numerous artists (in addition to the aforementioned)—including Janine Antoni, Byron Kim, Kimsooja, Glenn Ligon, Richard Tuttle, and Ursula von Rydingsvard—and on the subject of art in public space.

Benefit Week | Tour of the Whitney Biennial

April 9 @ 3:00 pm

Whitney Biennial logo

Please join us at the Whitney Museum of American Art for a private tour of the 2022 Whitney Biennial.

The 80th edition of the biennial, entitled Quiet as It’s Kept, will showcase the work of 63 artists and collectives distributed throughout most of the museum’s space.

Quiet as It’s Kept—a colloquialism typically said before the statement of something obviously meant to be kept a secret—was selected as the title after the co-organizers, curators David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards, were inspired by the usage of the phrase in a Toni Morrison novel and as the title of a Max Roach album. ‘The 2022 biennial arrives at a time haunted by a global pandemic and plagued by ongoing racial and economic inequities and polarizing politics,’ says Adam D. Weinberg, the museum’s Alice Pratt Brown director. ‘The artists in the exhibition challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community and offer one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years.'”

– Pili Swanson, Gotham Magazine

The Whitney Biennial is the longest-running survey of American art, and has been a hallmark of the Museum since 1932. Initiated by the Museum’s founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney as an invitational exhibition featuring artwork created in the preceding two years, the biennials were originally organized by medium, with painting alternating with sculpture and works on paper. Starting in 1937, the Museum shifted to yearly exhibitions called Annuals. The current format—a survey show of work in all media occurring every two years—has been in place since 1973. More than 3,600 artists have participated in a biennial or annual.

This is the second of two tours on Saturday, April 9. The first is at 1:30pm. Please click here if you are looking for the 1:30pm tour.

This program is $30 for ArtTable members, who may bring an additional guests for $45.
Capacity is limited.

Benefit Week | Tour of ‘Faith Ringgold: American People’ at the New Museum

April 8 @ 4:00 pm

Painting by Faith Ringgold

Please join us at the New Museum after our Annual Benefit & Award Ceremony for a private tour of Faith Ringgold: American People. Our tour will be led by Curatorial Assistant, Madeline Weisburg. Bringing together over fifty years of work, the exhibition provides the most comprehensive assessment to date of the artist’s vision.

Artist, author, educator, and organizer, Faith Ringgold is one of the most influential cultural figures of her generation. Her career links the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today. For sixty years, Ringgold has drawn from both personal autobiography and collective histories to both document her life as an artist and mother and to amplify the struggles for social justice and equity. From creating some of the most indelible artworks of the civil rights era to challenging accepted hierarchies of art versus craft through her experimental story quilts, Faith Ringgold has produced a body of work that bears witness to the complexity of the American experience.

This program is $35 and open to ArtTable members only. Capacity is limited.

About the Exhibition

Faith Ringgold: American People is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of this groundbreaking artist’s vision, highlighted by the first full presentation of her historic French Collection in over twenty years along with many other quintessential works that will be exhibited together for the first time in decades. Featuring Ringgold’s best-known series, this show examines the artist’s figurative style as it evolved to meet the urgency of political and social change. The exhibition also foregrounds her radical explorations of gender and racial identities, which the artist incorporates into the rich textures of her paintings, soft sculptures, and story quilts. Among the most important artworks of the past fifty years, Ringgold’s fabric works combine local traditions and global references to compose a polyphonic history of this country. Long overdue, this retrospective provides a timely opportunity to experience the art of an American icon.

NoCal | Curator-Led Tour of ‘Alice Neel: People Come First’ with Lauren Palmor

March 24 @ 4:00 pm

Painting by Alice Neel
4pm PST

Join ArtTable member Lauren Palmor, assistant curator of American art at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, for a tour of Alice Neel: People Come First at the de Young Museum. Alice Neel (1900–1984) was one of the century’s most radical painters, a champion of social justice whose longstanding commitment to humanist principles inspired her life as well as her art. This is the first comprehensive West Coast retrospective of Neel’s work. The award-winning exhibition includes paintings, drawings, and watercolors, along with additional artworks and media exclusive to the San Francisco presentation.

Neel spent most of her life in New York City, and her work testifies to the diversity, resilience, and passion of the people she encountered there. The exhibition includes depictions of Neel’s neighbors in Spanish Harlem, political leaders, queer cultural figures, activists, and mothers, along with a diverse representation of nude figures, including visibly pregnant women. Neel’s “pictures of people” embody a rare candor and irreverence. Together they emphasize her belief in the dignity and worth of all individuals, a view that remains critical to the social and cultural politics of our time.

This Must Be the Place: Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975 is a two-part group exhibition exploring the work of a generation of migrants who created and exhibited in New York City between 1965 and 1975. Featuring installation, photography, video art, painting, and archival material, the exhibition brings together a generation that actively participated in experimental artistic movements while pushing forward their own visual languages and ideas, with works exploring topics of migration, identity, politics, exile, and nostalgia. Additionally, the exhibition highlights the important contributions and solidarity initiatives of groups and collectives, testimony of these artists’ effort to create community and to forge a space for themselves.

Part II of the exhibition will continue the themes explored in Part I with new artworks on display, by artists including Hélio Oiticica, Sylvia Palacios Whitman, Anna Maria Maiolino, Antonio Dias, Enrique Castro-Cid, Beba Damianovich, Zilia Sánchez and many more.
