30 Americans at Honolulu Museum of Art
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating indefinitely
Honolulu Museum of Art presents the celebrated exhibition 30 Americans, featuring works by 30 contemporary artists connected through their African-American cultural history. The exhibition includes some of the most recognized and influential figures in the art world from the past four decades such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, and Kehinde Wiley. These artists create compelling works that refuse to play it safe, taking risks with pieces that are bold, vibrant, provocative, and sometimes confrontational.
Conceived by the Rubell Museum in Miami, Florida, and drawn entirely from their renowned collection, the exhibition has traveled across the United States for the past ten years to great acclaim. HoMA’s presentation of 30 Americans features 40 objects carefully selected for our venue, and installed throughout 8,000 square feet of gallery space. Works in painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and video bring focus to timely, challenging, and thought-provoking issues related to racial, ethnic, and gender identity; representation of the body; and the significance of cultural heritage and history.
Organized by the Rubell Museum.
This exhibition is made possible by Elizabeth Rice Grossman, Priscilla and James Growney, and Lynne Johnson and Randy Moore.
