All Things Being Equal: Selections from the Nerman Collection

KCAI is pleased to present a selection of rarely seen works from the private Nerman Collection. The Nerman Family has provided longtime generational support to KCAI which includes Cafe Nerman and creating the Nerman Family President endowment 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 practice with the KCAI community and the public. This exhibition includes works by Nick Cave (’82 Fiber), Rashid Johnson, Titus Kaphar, Simone Leigh, Glenn Ligon, Kerry James Marshall, Harold Smith, Hank Willis Thomas, Kara Walker, Carrie Mae Weems, Fred Wilson, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
