“Art History: Selections from the Green-Christian Collection”

Concurrent with the UTVAC's exhibit of "Art History: Selections from the Green-Christian Collection", the FAL is showing from January 31-March 8, 2014 examples of African-American and African Diaspora art practice from the mid-20th century to the present. The work and publications presented in our 3rd floor glass display cases reflect the type of historical narrative arc found in the UTVAC's show. All of the publications are available at the FAL for public use. The selections in the UTVAC's show are part of a collection owned by Rudy Green and Joyce Christian.

This is the second exhibition of work related to the Green-Christian Collection here at the the FAL. A previous exhibition at the FAL ran concurrently with “Five Decades of Haitian Painting: Selections from the Green-Christian Collection” highlighting Haitian art that was on view from September through December, 2013, at the ISESE Gallery in the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.
