"Reclamation! Pan-African Works" from the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection

The exhibiting artists create work that investigates the universal conversation of migration, history, race and representation in art being made today. The exhibition captures the personal stories and collective histories of artists reflected through installations, videos, paintings and sculptures.

Drawn from DeWoody’s significant contemporary African diaspora collection, it features world renowned artists such as Willie Cole, Hank Willis Thomas, Kerry James Marshall, Kara Walker, Romare Bearden, Kehinde Wiley, Sanford Biggers, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, and Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) among others working in a broad reach of media and conceptual approaches.

Presenting over 100 significant examples from her collection, the exhibition aims to represent artists whose work references ownership of their own home countries while developing narratives that embrace global histories.
