Virginia Jaramillo | Generations: A History of Black Abstract Art | The Baltimore Museum of Art

Hales is excited to announce the inclusion of Virginia Jaramillo in Generations: A History of Black Abstract Art, at the Baltimore Museum of Art. A central theme of the exhibition is the power of abstract art as a political choice as well as a personal statement for generations of black artists. The freedoms of postwar abstraction took on specific urgency as these artists resisted both the imagery of racist mainstream culture and pressures to create prescribed, positive representations of black Americans.


Curated by Christopher Bedford, BMA Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director, and Katy Siegel, BMA Senior Research Curator and Thaw Chair at Stony Brook University.
