TOLEDO, Ohio: PICTURE ID: Contemporary African American Works on Paper addresses issues of race, gender and identity.
A new exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art examines the work of contemporary African American artists who use a mixture of text and images to tackle cultural stereotypes and challenge oppressive racial characterizations. PICTURE ID: Contemporary African American Works on Paper will be on view until January 17, 2021. All works in the exhibition are drawn from TMA’s permanent collection. “The exhibition title is inspired by the key question each artist raises, which is how appearances shape our perceptions and assumptions of our identity and character,” said Robin Reisenfeld, TMA’s senior curator of works on paper.
