Now Showing...

I was recently blown away by the show "Figuring History" now showing at SAM ( Seattle Art Museum). It features the works of African American artists Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall ( featured above ), Mickalene Thomas.

The show brings together 3 generations of artists, all which challenge the Western tradition of painting and the people who are pictured in the paintings, bringing to light the lack of representation of people of color in art history. I will be going back to visit this exhibit again. It's mind blowing. For those who can't see it in person, here's an online peak. But I have to say, Mickalene Thomas paintings have to be experienced in person to really get a sense for the different techniques and scale of her work.
