But it's impossible to begin ticking off all the show's individual triumphs. Look for the work of Accra Shepp, Barron Claiborne, Don Camp, Cynthia Wiggins, Carrie Mae Weems, Omar Kharem, Gene Young, Martin Dixon, Reginald L.

It's not the ultimate cure for art-world myopia, but it's an important step in the eye-opening process.
