The current exhibition features innovative works by today’s emerging talent as well as quintessential examples by modern and contemporary Masters. Included is the iconic imagery of Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe, whose recent piece, Just Do it (2019) inspired a Nike campaign celebrating transgender athletes. Another exemplary work from the collection is Jackson Pollock’s Untitled (1944), which art historian Bernice Rose recognizes as “the essential invention of his visual field.”
Perhaps three of the paintings we are proudest to exhibit are Jadé Fadojutimi's The Barefooted Scurry Home (2017), Jordan Casteel's Mom (2013) and Cinga Samon's Lift Off (2017). All three works are currently marked as the highest-graded individual example from each artist on public ledger.
