Can you name #5WomenArtists? @womeninthearts asks this question during #WomensHistoryMonth to call attention to the fact that women have not been treated equally in the art world. Black women are doubly underrepresented in this context and often absent from America’s museums. With an eye towards changing that, CAAM is sharing the biography of @carlajayharris, an artist whose work is featured in our newly installed exhibition ‘Sanctuary: Recent Acquisitions to the Permanent Collection.’ Read more about Harris on our blog 600State, found on our website (link in bio, page down to EXPLORE).

One of the many pleasures of presenting Cross Colours: Black Fashion in the 20th Century has been examining the varied impacts of fashion. In February we explored the men in fashion and entrepreneurship with @michaelferrera, @tjwalkerofficial, @stayflythrash, @thedoctordapper, and @sherrywest22. This deep-dive into the world of men’s fashion was an eye-opening discussion for all! Photos: @hrdwrker

Our recently installed exhibition of works from CAAM’s permanent collection is called “Sanctuary.” While you can’t visit it in person right now, we’re sharing here some of these recently acquired works, which explore the concepts of safety and refuge as they relate to the African American experience.

This is:
Sam Vernon, “Kali Ma,” 2018

This work belongs to the series Endless Supply, in which @samevernon responds to her surroundings in Oakland, having moved there from New York in 2017. Exploring her new neighborhood, the artist found a treasure trove of Jet magazines at the San Pablo Flea Market. Many of the magazines are marked with the name and address of their original owner, a stranger to Vernon but a fellow consumer of black cultural production. Vernon believes the existence of the flea market, a black-owned space, is at risk due to displacement and gentrification in the area. In Kali Ma, Vernon collages photocopies of some of the flea market ephemera and reflects on the built environment of her neighborhood as a way to memorialize them. The work resembles a wall filled with partially removed signage and graffiti.

Enjoy this studio visit with Los Angeles-based artist @mulatta_cyborg, who investigates and critiques social structures through a conceptual and multidisciplinary practice that examines economic, racial, religious, and gendered systems of power. In her first solo museum exhibition in Los Angeles, the artist unites several bodies of work created since 2014, including a new series of sculptures made exclusively for CAAM.

One of our programs in early March, before this temporary closure, featured The New York Times critic-at-large and 1619 Project contributor Wesley Morris. @wssly enlightened the crowd with his thoughts on the intersection of black American music, fashion, and identity creation while engaging in conversation with CAAM’s Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Cameron Shaw.

Thoughts on notions of “home” as we hunker down—
Sula Bermúdez-Silverman mines her personal and familial histories as a woman of Afro-Puerto Rican and Jewish descent. In this series debuting at CAAM, she addresses early global trade, the beginnings of commodification, and economic hierarchies by taking molds of her childhood dollhouse and creating casts of it in sugar, a material whose history has dictated that of her ancestors.

Our last public program before this temporary closure was one for the history books! We were honored to have legendary guests @thegodrakim, @mrchuckd_pe, @talibkweli, and @tyreebp speak about Rakim’s new book, "Sweat the Technique" and share their thoughts on Hip-Hop’s role in contemporary activism. A big thank you to these gentlemen and all of you who came out for such an exciting evening!

Now more than ever, black artists and thinkers are rightfully front and center at mainstream institutions that have begun to present more exhibitions and programs about our art, history, and culture. Of course, this is nothing new to  CAAM. It’s been our mission to uphold African American art, history, and culture for more than forty years! 
Front & Center is a video series in which we ask friends of CAAM this timely question: At this moment, what do you think is the role and relevance of a place like CAAM, which is wholly dedicated to black creativity, vision, and experience? Here’s what artist @alison_saar has to say.
