Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection 

When: Feb. 22-July 15 2018
The most famed names in postwar abstract art—Mondrian, de Kooning, Pollock, Rothko—had very different ways of pushing painting past representation. They also had something in common: all were white. Of course, it isn't that African Americans weren't making vital contributions to the course of art history; it's that the white male canon-makers didn't as readily embrace them. This touring exhibit at the Nasher is a spectacular corrective, highlighting the African-diaspora abstract artists who refined this new way of seeing. They range from mid-twentieth-century Abstract Expressionist Norman Lewis to contemporary iconoclasts such as Theaster Gates and Mark Bradford, whose twenty-five-foot-tall sculpture anchors the exhibit. —Brian Howe
