In the main galleries

Guest curated by artist John Edmonds and organized by the KMA, the exhibition highlights an intergenerational group of contemporary artists from the Black diaspora—David O. Alekhuogie, Sanford Biggers, Lyle Ashton Harris, and Matthew Angelo Harrison— who are forging personal connections to traditional African art and interrogating its appropriation by the western art canon.

This exhibition was realized with generous support provided by the Director’s Circle of the Katonah Museum of Art: Mike Davies, Isabelle Harnoncourt Feigen, Vida Foubister, Nisa Geller, Virginia L. Gold, Linda Nordberg, Amy Parsons, Yvonne S. Pollack, Rochelle C. Rosenberg, Rebecca Samberg, and Richard and Audrey Zinman.
