Detroit Institute of Arts says
Fundamental to the exhibition "30 Americans" are
contemporary African American artists’ multiple
and varying perspectives on black identity and
the changing artistic expressions of it during the
past forty years. This all-day conference, presented
by the DIA’s General Motors Center for African
American Art, explores how works in the exhibition
assert the complexities of black identity. The conference features a keynote address by journalist and culture critic Touré and four panels of artists and scholars.
