The California African American Museum announced that its fall season of exhibitions will open to the public on October 19, celebrating the work of several generations of contemporary artists and historical figures.

This season, the exhibitions consider a range of subjects, from works by contemporary artists in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States to the intriguing history of the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany and the African American athletes who competed there. Also on view is the Los Angeles debut of Hank Willis Thomas’s celebrated video, Black Righteous Space, and the latest installment of the Museum’s selections from the permanent collection.


These new exhibitions and the public programs planned in conjunction with them are overseen by Deputy Director Naima J. Keith, who joined CAAM in February 2016 after holding curatorial positions at The Studio Museum in Harlem and Hammer Museum.

George O. Davis, Executive Director of the California African American Museum said, “Whether presenting emerging artist Genevieve Gaignard, offering a focused look into the history of the 1936 Olympics, delving into a range of contemporary concerns and formal issue with contemporary African artists, or showcasing the range of work available in our permanent collection, these exhibitions examine unique facets of American history and contemporary art.”
