African American Abstraction at Frieze Masters on view October 13-17 at The Regent’s Park, London.
October 13, 2021: ACA Galleries is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by African American artists at Frieze Masters on view October 13 through October 17, 2021 Booth B10 at The Regent’s Park, London. The exhibition examines the often-overlooked contributions of African American artists working in abstraction and aims to give new perspectives on artists not always associated with the genre. The exhibition presents exceptional examples by Henry “Mike” Bannard (1910-1965), Romare Bearden (1911-1988), Winston Branch (b.1947), Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012), Ed Clark (1926-2019), Paul Keene (1910-2005), Norman Lewis (1909-1979), Richard Mayhew (b. 1924) and Faith Ringgold (b. 1930). While Clark, Keene and Lewis are known for their contributions and commitment to abstraction, artists like Bearden and Ringgold are largely recognized for narrative and figurative works.
