Why did David Hammons create the African-American Flag?
African-American Flag is one of the artist’s best-known works, created in 1990 for the Black USA exhibition at Amsterdam’s Museum Overholland, running from April 7 to July 29, 1990.
The flag contains red, black, and green colors. It was used in the exhibition to create awareness of the lack of coverage of African-American artists in Europe. During this event, seven artists were selected, among them David Hammons, but no African-American women were featured in the exhibition.
