Drawing on works from the DMA’s permanent collection, this exhibition presents the ways in which contemporary artists engage with landscapes, broadly defined, exploring how our natural and built environments intersect with our representations of ourselves and our communities. The landscape has been both a traditional art historical genre and a means of mythologizing the origins of American history and culture as a colonial product, creating an image of unclaimed terrain that erased the people who already inhabited it.View more

The Katherine E. Nash Gallery presents The Form Will Find Its Way: Contemporary Ceramic Sculptural Abstraction, an international ceramics exhibition organized in association with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA). Minneapolis-based independent curator Elizabeth Carpenter has invited five international ceramic artists to participate in the exhibition and she has also chosen works by 35 artists who responded to an international juried call. Carpenter’s title for the exhibition and the curatorial premise guiding her choice of artists stemmed from a quotation by Peter Voulkos, an artist who almost single-handedly ushered in an interdisciplinary approach to the ceramic arts through his breakthrough conviction that the fields of painting, sculpture, and pottery could coalesce in works of great power and significance. Carpenter, in turn, explored experimental, cross-disciplinary, and aesthetically diverse artistic practices, with the explicit intention to avoid preconceptions about established categories like art and craft. The Form Will Find Its Way: Contemporary Ceramic Sculptural Abstraction coincides with Claytopia, the 53rd Annual NCECA Conference, which will take place March 27 – 30, 2019 in Minneapolis. The exhibition includes the creation of a new, site-specific clay installation by Dutch artist Alexandra Engelfriet, made possible with support from the Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts and Continental Clay Company.View more

Christopher Le Brun’s work is characterised by directness of touch and luminosity of colour, his interest in light and space perhaps the influence of growing up on the south coast. “Since the 1970s he has been producing paintings that defy categorisation but which are …possessed of an energy and drama at odds with the irony and theoretical baggage common to most British contemporary art.” He has exhibited extensively around the world, and in 2011 became the 26th President of the Royal Academy. This exhibition comprises new work, including an installation from his Doubles series, which explores the idea of composition by juxtaposing independent paintings to achieve a greater complexity of expression.View more
