Art of Rebellion

Art of Rebellion: Black Art of the Civil Rights Movement

Art of Rebellion: Black Art of the Civil Rights Movement features 34 paintings, sculptures and photographs mostly by African American artists, working both collectively and independently in the 1960s and 70s. The artists in this show asserted black identity and racial justice. Situated within the story of these collectives is the Detroit rebellion of 1967. The exhibition is co-organized by the DIA and Detroit's Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, which is hosting a complementary exhibition, Say it Loud: Art, History, Rebellion.



The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is premiering a mobile tour on Jan. 25 called Lumin that uses Google’s Tango technology to provide visitors with new, in-depth ways to engage with the DIA’s renowned collection. The DIA is the first art museum in the world to integrate this 3-D mapping and smartphone augmented reality (AR) technology into a public mobile tour.
