Augmented by key loans, the exhibition offers an overview of historic developments from the late nineteenth century to Post WWII. During this period, artists pioneered new aesthetic languages that called attention to the perceptual codes underlying visual experience. Commencing with Impressionism, this history may be traced through Post-Impressionism, Surrealism and Dada, and Abstraction – including Geometric, Expressionist, and Post-Painterly modes.
Shaping Vision explores the representational strategies identified with these evolutionary practices and the inventive approaches to artistic interpretation by modern artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Joan Mitchell, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Rufino Tamayo, Robert Motherwell, and Agnes Martin.
This exhibition is organized by Daniell Cornell, Artistic Director
