Vielmetter Los Angeles congratulates Genevieve Gaignard, Wangechi Mutu, Deborah Roberts and Mickalene Thomas for being featured in Multiplicity: Blackness in Contemporary American Collage at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

Multiplicity: Blackness in Contemporary American Collage is the first major museum exhibition devoted to the subject, presenting over 80 major collage and collage-informed works that reflect the breadth and complexity of Black identity. Featuring an intergenerational group of 52 living artists, Multiplicity explores the varying ways collage is employed and how the technique suggests diverse conceptual concerns such as cultural hybridity, notions of beauty, gender fluidity, and historical memory. By assembling pieces of paper, photographs, fabric, and salvaged or repurposed materials, these artists create unified compositions that express the endless possibilities of Black-constructed narratives despite our fragmented society.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with scholarly essays and will travel to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and The Phillips Collection.
