Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art stands in solidarity with Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities.
We mourn the victims of the recent atrocities in Atlanta, and condemn the violence and aggression that continue across the country against these communities.
To mark the exhibition’s opening and allow for social distancing, Kemper Museum offers a week-long elevated experience featuring special dishes from Café Sebastienne, limited edition merchandise in the Museum Shop, and take-home art activities for all ages.
By combining techniques of abstract expressionism with Indigenous art forms, Dyani White Hawk’s work inspires viewers to expand notions of history, identity, and cultural value.
The Missouri Humanities Council (MHC) has awarded a grant of $2,500 to Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in support of the 2021 exhibition, "Dyani White Hawk: Speaking to Relatives."
