Product Description

The catalog for the exhibition: Art of Rebellion: Black Art of the Civil Rights Movement

Exhibit information: SUN, JUL 23, 2017 — SUN, OCT 22, 2017

Explore powerful artworks by African American artists who formed collectives during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. These collectives, made up of artists working together in distinct groups, created art specifically for African American audiences that asserted black identity and racial justice.

This exhibition includes 34 paintings, sculptures, installations and photographs produced by artists working both collectively and independently to address social and political issues surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and today. Situated within the story of these collectives is the Detroit Rebellion of 1967.

 The DIA and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History are collaborating to develop two exhibitions as part of a community-wide remembrance of the Detroit Rebellion of July 1967. The exhibitions, each taking a different approach, will complement one another.
