Look Now: Modern and Contemporary Art from Private Collections
This exhibition featured 39 works by 20th- and 21st-century artists who have extended the boundaries of art making. Drawn from area private collections, the exhibition offered a rare opportunity to view works that are seldom exhibited in public and showcased the art of early and midcentury masters such as Andrew Dasburg, Morton Livingston Schamberg, William Henry Johnson, Jacob Lawrence, Steve Wheeler, Louise Bourgeois, Roy Lichtenstein, Sol LeWitt, Alex Katz, Joseph Kosuth, Yayoi Kusama, Bill Viola, and Andy Warhol; leading contemporary photographers such as Louise Lawler, Michael Eastman, and Cindy Sherman; and key younger artists such as A. Balasubramaniam, Amy Cutler, Rachel Harrison, Ryan McGinness, Alexis Rockman, Mickalene Thomas, and Rachel Perry Welty. Representing a range of media, including painting, sculpture, video, photography, drawings, and prints, Look Now provided an extraordinary range of perspectives on the art of our time. The exhibition was co-curated by Gail Stavitsky, chief curator, and Alexandra Schwartz, curator of contemporary art.
