CANCELLED: Curator Tour: A World of Strangers: Crowds in American Art
This program has been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Join curator James Glisson for a private tour of the exhibit, A World of Strangers: Crowds in American Art, and learn more about how this mixture of photographs, paintings, and prints shows us the world of strangers in which we are immersed.
Crowds are the temporary groups that strangers form at baseball games, parades, riots, and on city streets. Fickle and ephemeral, crowds can be joyous, destructive, or somber. As this focused loan exhibition of about 20 works shows, artists have represented groups of people as patterns of dots, murky silhouettes, and teeming, river-like currents of cars and machinery. Though George Bellows, Walker Evans, Armin Landeck, George Luks, and Weegee are not abstract artists, these patterns are nevertheless a form of abstraction that erases individuality and tames the crowd's restless energy. With works from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries and a mixture of artistic media, including prints and photographs, this exhibition explores the world of strangers in which we are immersed.
