Currently on display at the Orlando Museum of Art, the group exhibition Voices & Conversations of contemporary American artists involves some heavy (and familiar, to OMA-goers) names with a focus on issues of identity, inclusion, activism and engagement.

Artists represented in Voices include Nick Cave – you’ll get another chance to scope out his Soundsuit – along with Therman Statom, Bisa Butler, Kyle Meyer and Kerry James Marshall.

You’ll see glass installations, woodcuts, and even a quilted portrait by Butler of activist Wangari Maathai (pictured above) that made the cover of Time magazine.

Voices & Conversations will be up at OMA through May 2, 2021 and should not be missed. Book your advance timed ticket here.
