About The Exhibition
This installation invites visitors to experience new conversations among works created after 1960 by a diverse range of artists. The Cleveland Museum of Art is honored to feature Kerry James Marshall’s masterpiece Bang (1994), on loan from the Progressive Corporation, in conversation with works from the museum’s collection—including recent acquisitions, such as Rashid Johnson’s Standing Broken Men (2021) and Kambui Olujimi’s Italo (2021), as well as longtime CMA favorites, like Andy Warhol’s Marilyn x 100 (1962). Other highlights of the installation are recently acquired sculptures by Melvin Edwards, a radiant textile by Olga de Amaral that has not been exhibited for many years, and special private collection loans from by Chris Ofili and Elias Sime. Together, the works on view demonstrate the various perspectives, backgrounds, and identities that animate contemporary art.
Reinstallation of these galleries was made possible with principal support provided by the Sandy and Sally Cutler Strategic Opportunities Fund.
