A new generation of African-American artists are widening the perimeters of American culture. Bold, highly individualistic, and very gifted, these artists exhibit a clear understanding of the intricacies of the contemporary art machine, which enables them to negotiate the mainstream with admirable finesse. They are as intent on visibility as they are on defining their own perspectives beyond the dictates of history, precedent, or community. A panel of artists and critics explores how this group is reconfiguring our assumptions about African-American art.
