Provocative African American Art in the Saint Louis Art Musem’s Exhibition Graphic Revolution

Provocative African American Art in the Saint Louis Art Musem’s Exhibition Graphic Revolution

Elizabeth Wyckoff, Curator of Prints, Drawings & Photographs/SLAM, who in an earlier St. Louis American livestream, asserts the diversity of the artists in the show, passes the baton to collector Adrienne D. Davis, Vice Provost/Professor of Law at Washington University.

Professor Davis discusses how she became an art collector, points out the formidable technique in Kara Walker’s piece, “Keys to the Coop” (1997) and addresses the controversy surrounding Walker’s body of work, particularly among African Americans.

Next, we get a peek of Robert Blackburn’s colorful lithograph, “Faux Pas” (1960), a gift from St. Louis-reared collector Ronald Ollie and his wife Monique.

Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now will be on display at the Saint Louis Art Museum until February 3, 2019
