Ming Smith: Feeling the Future

This special exhibition explores artist Ming Smith’s unparalleled and under-recognized career from the early 1970s through the present. The exhibition encompasses a multitude of artistic expressions to represent Smith’s vibrant and multi-layered practice, which is grounded in portraiture, and amplifies the heartbeat of Black life in the United States. Feeling the Future places works from the artist’s five-decades of creation in conversation with one another, exploring themes such as Afrofuturism, Black cultural expression, representation, and social examination.
