Featuring over 150 works by more than 60 artists, Soul of a Nation offers a sweeping view of the remarkable art made by Black artists during one of the most crucial periods in American history. This critically-acclaimed exhibition is an unprecedented look at a broad spectrum of work by African American artists from 1963 to 1983 and considers the varied ways that Black artists responded to the demands of an urgent moment.

    One: Do Ho Suh
    One: Do Ho Suh features a single, large-scale work by artist Do Ho Suh, whose work engages with migration and cultural displacement. The Perfect Home II (2003), a recent acquisition in the Museum's collection of Contemporary Art, is a full-scale re-creation of Suh's former apartment in New York. Made with a translucent nylon material and carefully hand-sewn, the work questions the meaning of permanence, the process of finding a home, and how personal space comes to define an individual.

    Syria, Then and Now: Stories from Refugees a Century Apart
    This exhibition explores the connections between the historical and modern-day plights of refugees, featuring highlights from the museum's collection of thirteenth-century Syrian ceramics alongside work by the contemporary Arab artists Giane Makki Bacho, Issam Kourbaj, and Mohamed Hafez. The juxtaposition between these works highlights the ongoing struggle to find a home during tumultuous times and the commonalities between refugees throughout history.
