In the Tower: Kerry James Marshall
June 28–December 7, 2013

Image: Kerry James Marshall Great America, 1994 Gift of the Collectors Committee 2011.20.1 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.
