Young, Gifted and Black: A New Generation of Artists, The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art
The museum celebrates the recent publication of this survey of the work of a new generation of Black artists. Edited by writer Antwaun Sargent, the book accompanies the Young, Gifted and Blackexhibition, which will travel to the Manetti Shrem Museum in 2022. Join museum Associate Curator Susie Kantor for a conversation with collector Bernard Lumpkin, writer Antwaun Sargent, and Matt Wycoff, curator of the Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection.

As mission-driven collectors, Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi have championed emerging artists of African descent through museum loans and institutional support. But there has never been an opportunity to consider their acclaimed collection as a whole until now.Edited by Sargent,Young, Gifted and Blackdraws from this collection to shed new light on works by these contemporary artists. At a moment when debates about the politics of visibility within the art world have taken on renewed urgency, and establishment voices such as theNew York Timesare declaring that “it has become undeniable that African American artists are making much of the best American art today,”Young, Gifted and Blacktakes stock of how these new voices are affecting the way we think about identity, politics and art history itself.
