Window to Wall: Art from Architecture

Some of the greatest works of modern art aim to change our relationship to the world around us, allowing us to see it with new eyes. Window to Wall: Art from Architecture surveys the ways in which artists have turned their attention—and ours—to architecture, which shapes our daily lives but most often goes unnoticed. Featuring architectural sites both real and imagined, famous and familiar, their works reveal the formal, metaphorical, and social dimensions of our built environment.

We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85

Focusing on the work of black women artists, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s. It is the first exhibition to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color—distinct from the primarily white, middle-class mainstream feminist movement—in order to reorient conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period

Matisse and the Art of Jazz

Henri Matisse recognized the expressive potential of printmaking, and over the course of his career, he created a large body of graphic works that both informed and rearticulated themes he explored in other mediums. During the 1930s, the artist started making collages as studies for paintings and sculptures by arranging cut paper into decorative configurations. Bedridden during a prolonged convalescence following a serious operation in 1941, he began to consider further the possibilities that “painting with scissors” offered—an experiment that endured for the last decade of Matisse’s life.
