Kevin Beasley (American, born 1985)
Chair of the Ministers of Defense, 2016

This immersive installation explores ideas of power and race in America through theatrics reminiscent of the Roman Baroque. Here, renowned conceptual artist Kevin Beasley calls into focus Black liberation movements and ongoing imbalances of power experienced by Black Americans and marginalized men and women of color. The work maintains a formality often employed in religious imagery and in art intended to convey the divine right of leaders.

Jim Dine (American, born 1935),

Among the most distinguished figures in Contemporary art, Jim Dine (b. 1935) is an inspiring presence as a painter, printmaker, sculptor, and poet. Fearlessly experimental, Dine helped define the Pop Art movement, then expanded his creative reach within and beyond the American art scene to become one of the most iconic and influential artists on the international stage.
