The Cochran Collection

Dancing on the Edge of the Abyss

Abstraction by African American Woman Artists


Dancing on the Edge of the Abyss Installation Photos

The Cochrans began building their impressive collection of abstract works at a time when it was unusual to collect non-figurative art by African American artists. The works in the exhibition attest to the remarkable depth of talent of African American women artists who worked in the field of abstraction despite receiving little critical or popular attention, a situtaiton that has only recently begun to change.
