“Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today”
October 13, 2017 at 10:00 am - October 31, 2017 at 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Sunday, repeating until October 31, 2017
An effort to make nonrepresentational art more culturally representational, this exhibit takes its name from a vivid 1991 oil painting (above) by late American artist Mildred Thompson, one of 21 African-American women, born between 1891 and 1981, whose works are featured. Other notable pieces include Mary Lovelace O’Neal’s ominous lithograph “Racism Is Like Rain, Either It’s Raining or It’s Gathering Somewhere” and Maren Hassinger’s “Wrenching News,” which is made of twisted, shredded copies of the New York Times.
