Manetti Shrem presents 'Young, Gifted and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art'
Tavares Strachan, I belong here, 2013.



DAVIS, CA.- The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, at the University of California, Davis is pleased to present Young, Gifted and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art. This wide-ranging exhibition highlighting artists of African descent whose work explores identity, politics and art history makes its West Coast debut July 28.

Young, Gifted and Black: The Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection of Contemporary Art is the first public stand-alone exhibition curated from the renowned Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Family Collection. As a key component of collector and advocate Bernard Lumpkin’s public education focus, Young, Gifted and Black is traveling primarily to college and university galleries and museums. Initially scheduled to open at the Manetti Shrem Museum in July 2020, but delayed by the pandemic, the exhibition will be on view July 28 through Dec. 19, 2022. Young, Gifted and Black is curated by Antwaun Sargent and Matt Wycoff and organized for the Manetti Shrem Museum by Associate Curator and Exhibition Department Head Susie Kantor.

Young, Gifted and Black gathers and elevates an emerging generation of contemporary artists who are engaging with their predecessors while finding new and different ways to address the history and meaning of blackness in their work. The group includes well-known artists, such as David Hammons, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Henry Taylor and Kara Walker, as well as a younger generation gaining wider recognition, including Tunji Adeniyi-Jones, Sadie Barnette, Cy Gavin, Arcmanoro Niles, Jennifer Packer and others. The survey is organized around four themes — dramatic use of color, reclamation of the color black, materiality (non-traditional materials), and an expanded idea of portraiture.

I belong here, a neon sculpture by Tavares Strachan, is also on loan from the Lumpkin-Boccuzzi Collection. It is installed in the Manetti Shrem Museum’s lobby through March 2023, coinciding with Young, Gifted and Black.

“The Manetti Shrem Museum is excited to host this thought-provoking exhibition,” said Founding Director Rachel Teagle. “Not only does it introduce some of the most significant artists working today to UC Davis and the region, but it’s also in keeping with our track record of presenting emerging artists.”

Only five of the artists in Young, Gifted and Black are based on the West Coast, including Sadie Barnette, whose exhibition Dear 1968,… was at the Manetti Shrem Museum in 2017.

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with the Manetti Shrem Museum team in bringing Young, Gifted and Black to the West Coast,” said Lumpkin.

“At a time when America is wrestling anew with race and racism, and debates about equality and inclusion in the art world have taken on greater urgency, this exhibition assesses how artists today are shaping the way we think about identity, art and history.”
