Iván Carmona is included in Black Artists of Oregon, currently on view at the Portland Art Museum.
Black Artists of Oregon, curated by Intisar Abioto, highlights and celebrates the work of Black artists in and outside of the museum collection.
“Considering both the presence and absence of Black artists is critical to understanding the breadth of Black artistic production in Oregon—even in the midst of historic exclusion—as well as how the impact of that history affects our understanding of American art history and the history of the Pacific Northwest. This exhibition serves to deepen our awareness of the talented artists who have shaped and inspired artists regionally and nationally, and it will be the first of its kind to consider the work of Black artists collectively in Oregon. Beginning in the 1880s and spanning through today, Black Artists of Oregon captures the Black diasporic experiences particular to the Pacific Northwest with 69 artists and over 200 objects…”
The exhibition remains on view through March 17, 2023.
