About

Beauford Delaney and James Baldwin: Through the Unusual Door features 50+ paintings, works on paper, and unpublished archival material illuminating the 38-year relationship between painter Beauford Delaney (Knoxville 1901-1979 Paris) and writer James Baldwin (New York 1924-1987 Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France) and the ways their ongoing intellectual exchange shaped one another’s creative output and worldview.

The exhibition, organized by the KMA, draws from the museum’s extensive Delaney holdings, public and private collections around the country, and rarely displayed papers held by the Delaney estate.

Exhibition runs through May 10, 2020.
