June 28–December 7, 2013
Kerry James Marshall is one of the most exciting and celebrated painters currently working in the United States. His art is a reflection on African American history and the reverberations of the past in contemporary life. Marshall's first solo exhibition in Washington—10 paintings and some 20 works on paper—affords a context for understanding the Gallery’s own Great America (1994) and its powerful imagery. In the Tower: Kerry James Marshall marks the sixth in a series of Tower installations focusing on developments in art since midcentury.
Organization: Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
Sponsor: The exhibition is sponsored by Dr. Anita Blanchard and Martin Nesbitt and Cari and Michael Sacks. Additional support is provided by The Tower Project.
