Black Abstractionists: From Then ‘til Now Rachel Jones

8 October 2022—29 January 2023
Green Family Art Foundation, Dallas, TX

Black Abstractionists: From Then ‘til Now, curated by Dexter Wimberly focuses on Black abstract artists spanning multiple generations, starting in the 1960s with Alma Thomas and ending with young artists working today, such as Michaela Yearwood-Dan and Vaughn Spann. The history of Black artists working in abstraction is inseparable from the history of modern and contemporary art.
