March 3 – September 9, 2019
Taubman Museum of Art

“Reclamation! Pan-African Works from the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection” featured over one hundred works from various media highlighting the global migration of peoples across the world. The exhibiting artists create work that investigates the universal conversation of migration, history, race and representation in art being made today. The exhibition captured the personal stories and collective histories of artists reflected through installations, videos, paintings and sculptures. Drawn from DeWoody’s significant contemporary African diaspora collection, it features world renowned artists such as Willie Cole, Hank Willis Thomas, Kerry James Marshall, Kara Walker, Romare Bearden, Kehinde Wiley, Sanford Biggers, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, and Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) among others working in a broad reach of media and conceptual approaches. Beth Rudin DeWoody, art collector and curator, resides between Los Angeles, New York City, and West Palm Beach. She is President of The Rudin Family Foundation and Executive Vice President of Rudin Management.

“Reclamation! Pan-African Works from the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection” was co-curated by Laura Dvorkin of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, Amy Moorefield, Deputy Director of Exhibitions and Eva Thornton, Assistant Curator of the Taubman Museum of Art.
