NEW YORK, NY.- Accola Griefen Fine Art announced the acquisition of Renée Stout’s Black Wall by the Zimmerli Art Museum in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The acquisition was made possible through the generous support of Norman and Dianne Finkelstein. The work is currently on view in the museum's Art of the Americas Gallery.

“In her objects themselves, Stout has embedded the magic of art — a bewitching artifice — which is to say that her paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and photographs are so carefully constructed and so authentically felt they conjure and sustain their own reality.” – Jillian Steinhauer, Hyperallergic

Renée Stout’s work explores the spiritual roots of her African American heritage, everyday life in her Washington DC neighborhood and current political events. She is known for working across media to combine highly detailed virtuoso trompe-l’oeil effects, rich layers of pigment, abstract passages and sculptural elements, both found and constructed.

Stout is the first American artist to exhibit in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.; her traveling museum exhibition, Tales of a Conjure Woman, which originated at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, College of Charleston, SC was accompanied by a major monograph and was named one of the top 10 exhibitions of 2015 by Hyperallergic. In 2016 her work in the exhibition RAGGA NYC at the New Museum in New York was reviewed in The New Yorker and in Artnet. In 2021 Stout was included in The Dirty South: Contemporary Art, Material Culture, and the Sonic Impulse, curated by Valerie Cassel Oliver at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Stout has been the recipient of awards from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Bader Fund, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation and the Driskell Prize, awarded by the High Museum of Art, among many others.

The artist has also had solo exhibitions at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Pittsburgh, PA; American University, Washington, D.C.; the Wellin Museum of Art, Hamilton, NY; the Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Kalamazoo, MI; the Beach Museum of Art, Manhattan, KS and many others
