All Things Being Equal: Selections From the Nerman Collection

September 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - October 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

This exhibition features rarely seen works from the private Nerman Collection. Their longtime generational support of KCAI includes Café Nerman, the Ceramics Studio and endowing the President’s position at the college. We concurrently celebrate Sue Nerman’s new role as elected chair of the Board of Trustees. This exhibition brings to view select critical works by African American artists from their home sharing the related stories, creativity and rigor with the KCAI community and the public. Exhibition includes works by Nick Cave, Rashid Johnson, Titus Kaphar, Simone Leigh, Glenn Ligon, Kerry James Marshall, Harold Smith, Hank Willis Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, Fred Wilson, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.

Artwork: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Amber and Jasmine
