Bill Hodges Gallery presents Blockbuster, an exhibition of highly significant paintings and sculptures by major figures of African American art history. Carefully curated from the gallery’s more than forty-year collection, Blockbuster features powerful works that convey a breadth of artistic innovation and phenomenal storytelling – distinguishing the canon of Black Art as foundational to the contemporary art genre.

With rarely seen works by preeminent artists Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Richard Hunt, Charles Alston, Beauford Delaney, Edward Clark, Sam Gilliam, and many others, this exhibition draws from the most important works in the collection to demonstrate the heights of Black artistic production. From monumental paintings by Norman Lewis and Merton Simpson to striking sculptural marvels by Richard Hunt and Agustin Cardenas, Blockbuster is a celebration of the achievements made by Black artists whose oeuvre reflects on seminal moments throughout art history.
