David Driskell: Icons of Nature and History

Vibrant paintings, prints and collages combine keen observations of America with the imagery and aesthetic innovations of the African diaspora.

David Driskell (1931-2020) was one of the most revered American artists of his generation. His vibrant paintings, prints and collages combine keen observations of America with the imagery and aesthetic innovations of the African diaspora. This exhibition surveys his versatile art practice from the 1950s forward and explores his thematic concerns, from the solace of nature to the tumult of the 1960s and his search for identity through African images and forms. Driskell was not only an artist but an influential educator and scholar. Through both his art and his advocacy on behalf of Black artists, he made vital contributions to art history.
