Kehinde Wiley, ‘Marechal Floriano Peixoto,’ 2009

The Phoenix Art Museum, in its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, presents “Under-Represented Art.”

Meet artists that tend to be under-represented in American museums. Self-identified as Navaho/Pueblo Laguna, Anishinaabe, Mexican, Black, Gay & Queer, these artists produce work ranging from abstracted to hyper-realism. The presentation includes a presidential portrait, a work inspired by Picasso’s Guernica, images of performance and political art, and installation and immersive art. Join us for powerful, compelling stories of chaos, transformation, and harmony.

Ana Teresa Fernandez, Erasure, 2016
