The American Academy in Berlin is thrilled to welcome Chicago-based artist Kerry James Marshall for a two-week residency as its first Max Beckmann Distinguished Visitor. Two important recent works by Marshall will be generously loaned to the Academy for this occasion. Marshall is best known for his stark, large-scale narrative paintings that focus on African-American subjects and thereby comment on the exclusion of black identity from Western art.
