Black Male: Representations of Masculinity in Contemporary American Art

Nov 1994 - Mar 1995, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
Curator: Thelma Golden
Black Male investigated the complex aesthetics and politics at work in representations of African American men in the post-Civil Rights era.
The Whitney's multimedia exhibition looks at the black male as an icon. Showcasing work by 29 artists of varying race, ethnicity and gender (including David Hammons, Lorna Simpson, Robert Mapplethorpe, Pat Ward Williams, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lyle Ashton Harris, and Andres Serrano, among others), the show, through installation pieces, photography, sculpture, film and video, presents a range of representation--images that "challenge and transform the 'negative' stereotypes," "real and imagined," writes Golden in the exhibition catalogue.
