Travelling to the Newark Museum, Newark, NJ in 2011.
Romare Bearden: Southern Recollections will feature approximately 80 works of art that span the career of this internationally renowned artist. The exhibition underscores not only Bearden’s artistic mastery, particularly in the technique of collage, but also his development of narrative and thematic explorations of his native South. Collages, paintings, and works on paper will be assembled from acclaimed public and private collections. Organized to celebrate the centennial of Bearden’s birth, the exhibition will examine how the South served as a source of inspiration throughout his career.
