THE YEAR IN BLACK ART is off to a fascinating start. In January, Helen Molesworth organized a Noah Davis (1983-2015) exhibition at David Zwirner gallery in New York, a rare look at more than 20 paintings by the late Los Angeles-based artist and founder of the Underground Museum. The Johnson Publishing Company art collection was sold at Swann Auction Galleries, introducing more than 24 new African American artists to the auction market and setting records for an additional 27 artists, according to Swann.

There is much more to come as the year unfolds. Recognizing the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote, a number of institutions are planning exhibitions and events reflecting the historic milestone, none more ambitious than the Baltimore Museum of Art where all of its 2020 programming is focused on women artists, including Mickalene Thomas, Valerie Maynard, SHAN Wallace, and Shinique Smith.

Across the United States, major photography exhibitions are opening featuring Dawoud Bey, Deana Lawson, and Louis Draper and the Kamoinge Workshop. South African photographer Zanele Muholi’s first major UK survey opens at the Tate Modern in April. Solo shows at major institutions are celebrating artists such as Jordan Casteel, Tschabalala Self, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Christina Quarles, and Deborah Roberts, who focus on portraiture and black figures. Huge events are also happening in Bentonville, Ark., with the debut of a new arts space, and New Orleans, where Prospect.5 opens in October.

Following is a selection of more than two dozen important exhibitions, events, and happenings to look forward to in 2020:

EXHIBITIONS | Multiple Shows Featuring Women Artists @ Baltimore Museum of Art | Throughout 2020

Last November, the Baltimore Museum of Art announced it would exclusively acquire artworks by women in 2020 and mount 22 exhibitions featuring the work of women artists or focused on women as subjects. The radical gesture was designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. The museum’s all-female programming was inaugurated at the end of last year with “Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure,” an installation in the East Lobby (Nov. 24, 2019-May 2021). Additional exhibitions on view this year include “SHAN Wallace: 410” (March 1-June 28, 2020), “Valerie Maynard: Lost and Found” (March 1-June 28, 2020), “Howardena Pindell: Free, White and 21” (March 1-June 28, 2020), “Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young: Back and Song” (March 1-June 28, 2020), and “Shinique Smith: Grace Stands Beside” (March 15-Aug. 9, 2020).

EXHIBITION | Derek Fordjour: Shelter @ Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis | Jan 17-April 19, 2020

For his first major solo museum show, New York-based Derek Fordjour has fashioned an exhibition space as a form of shelter with corrugated metal walls and a dirt floor. The immersive experience is intended to remind museum goers of the perils and uncertainty of the world. Displayed within the makeshift space, Fordjour’s layered portraits of athletes, cheer squads, and marching bands explore a variety of themes through the lens of sport—from identity, inequality, and spectacle to competition, excellence, and community.

A selection of works made over the past three years and a new large-scale installation will be on view.

The work of Christina Quarles explores the universal experience of existing within a body, as well as the ways race, gender, and sexuality intersect to form complex identities. — MCA Chicago

EXHIBITION | “The Green Book” @ National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, Tenn. | June 13-Sept. 13, 2020

The exhibition will explore the reality of the segregation era that made the resource necessary, black-owned businesses that thrived during the period, and the rising leisure class in the black community. A Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, this show is organized in collaboration with Candacy Taylor, a photographer, cultural documentarian, and author of “Overground Railroad: The Green Book & Roots of Black Travel in America.” Explore Green Books in Schomburg Collection

In addition to her mixed-media works, Roberts is showing two new interactive sound, text, and video sculptures and the museum has commissioned her to create a mural on the museum’s exterior.

Deborah Roberts focuses her gaze on African American children—historically, and still today, among the most vulnerable members of our population—investigating how societal pressures, projected images of beauty or masculinity, and the violence of American racism conditions their experiences growing up in this country as well as how others perceive them. — Contemporary Austin

Led by co-artistic directors Naima Keith and Diana Nawi, the latest iteration of Prospect New Orleans is titled “Yesterday we said tomorrow.” Inspired by an album from New Orleans–born jazz musician Christian Scott, the theme “addresses the social body and the individual, suggesting the deferral of structural and political change.” Keith and Nawi tapped an eight-member directors council of prominent curators and arts leaders to help organize exhibitions and programming for the citywide triennial. An international slate of participating artists will be announced in the coming months. In addition, a group of emerging cultural producers is planning public programs in advance of the opening.

EXHIBITION | Deana Lawson @ Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston | Nov. 18, 2020-March 14, 2021

ICA Boston is presenting the first museum survey dedicated to the unique practice of photographer Deana Lawson. Intended to reflect everyday life, her highly staged and stylized large-format images explore representations of black identity rarely seen in museums and galleries. The show is traveling to MoMA PS1 and a fully illustrated catalog is being published to document the exhibition. (This presentation follows a solo exhibition of Deana Lawson at Kunsthalle Basel in Basel, Switzerland, from March 27-May 24, 2020.)

For more than 15 years, Deana Lawson has been investigating and challenging the conventional representations of black identities. Drawing on a wide spectrum of photographic languages, including the family album, studio portraiture, staged tableaux, documentary pictures, and appropriated images, Lawson’s posed photographs channel broader ideas about personal and social histories, sexuality, and spiritual beliefs.
