This survey of Mia’s contemporary holdings rethinks the meaning of what’s current and relevant in artmaking. Twelve artworks created in the past two decades, by nine artists, cast ideas about history into high political and cultural relief, challenging the status quo from a place of deep commitment to identity. Artists include Pao Houa Her, Chihiro Mori, Siah Armajani, Stan Douglas, Mickalene Thomas, and Pushpamala N. If you’re not familiar with their talents, now is the time.
