Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World's Fairs

Opens April 12th, 2013 - August 4, 2013

From nearly a century following their inception in 1851, world’s fairs were the most important vehicles for debuting advancements in modern living and democratizing design. The decorative arts they showcased were the physical manifestation of the progressive, economic, and technological ideals embodied in the fairs. Inventing the Modern World explores the ingenuity and diversity of decorative arts made for world’s fairs, from the London Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations in 1851 to the New York World’s Fair in 1939. Impermanent as the exhibitions were, decorative arts are among the only surviving elements

Sculpture Garden at NOMA is one of the most important sculpture installations in the United States, with over 60 sculptures situated on a beautifully landscaped site amongst meandering footpaths, reflecting lagoons, Spanish moss-laden 200-year-old live oaks, mature pines, magnolias, camellias, and pedestrian bridges.

Masterworks of modern and contemporary sculpture dramatically emerge in the BMA’s Sculpture Gardens, a verdant landscape of art and horticulture that welcomes visitors throughout the year. Nestled on nearly three acres in the heart of the city, the two terraced gardens are home to 34 sculptures ranging from Auguste Rodin’s striding Balzac (1892) to Alexander Calder’s soaring red 100 Yard Dash (1969), and provide a 100-year survey of sculpture from the figural to the abstract.

What is a gem? "Jewels, Gems, and Treasures: Ancient to Modern," the first exhibition in the Museum's new Rita J. and Stanley H. Kaplan Family Foundation Gallery, examines the various roles and meanings associated with a wide range of gem materials. Drawn from the MFA’s collection and select loans, these range from a 24th-century BC Nubian conch shell amulet, to Mary Todd Lincoln’s 19th-century diamond and gold suite, to a 20th-century platinum, diamond, ruby, and sapphire Flag brooch honoring the sacrifices of the Doughboys in World War I.

Art of Mosaics: Piecing It Together

The artists in this exhibit represent a spectrum of what has been an explosion of interest in mosaics from the late 20th century up to today. Using a variety of techniques and materials, they have been reinventing the medium and exploring new ways of covering objects, walls, and more with bits of glass, ceramics, beads, polymer clay, marbles, resins, semi-precious, stones, precious metals, and many other materials that allow an idea to be expressed freely.

CHUTZPAH! Contemporary Judaica at the MIA

Saturday, July 14, 2012—Sunday, July 21, 2013
Harold and Mickey Smith Gallery of Jewish Art and Culture (G362)
Free Exhibition
 

In The Joys of Yiddish, author Leo Rosten defines chutzpah to mean, "gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, incredible 'guts,' presumption plus arrogance such as no other word and no other language can do justice to." Breaking with Jewish tradition in ritual art certainly requires some chutzpah, but for contemporary artists and designers the risk can result in exciting new forms of Judaica.

 

 

Women in Craft and Design

Saturday, July 28, 2012—Sunday, July 20, 2014
Wells Fargo Center
Free Exhibition

Since the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century, women have been an active force in craft and design. The movement's predominant aim was to produce beautifully designed and well-made objects for everyday use. The democratic ambitions of Arts and Crafts appealed to female artists who were encouraged not only to participate, but also to lead. The innovation and creation of these early female modernists continues today, with original handcrafted objects and utilitarian works of art designed for mass production.

Drawing from the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, this exhibition at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Minneapolis showcases the talents of women in the fields of industrial design and craft. Examples of industrial design come from a diverse array of pioneering women, including British silver designer Kate Harris, American inventor Marion Weeber, and lifelong designer Eva Zeisel, who recently passed away at the age of 105. Works by contemporary craft artists include vessels by British ceramicist Jennifer Lee, American wood artist Virginia Dotson, and local artist Jan McKeachie-Johnson. Combined, this selection of objects highlights the creativity and skill women have used to transform everyday objects into fascinating and beautiful works of art.

 

Norwest Modernism Collection:

An important recent gift is the Norwest Modernism Collection, comprising nearly 500 works in all media documenting salient components of six modernist movements, from Arts and Crafts (1880) through Art Deco (1950). Since its donation in 1998, the collection has supplied works in a series of exhibitions at the museum, at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Minneapolis, and on the award-winning Modernism Web site.

Andrew Hayes
Strata: Paper and Steel
Reception: August 2 from 5-8pm
August 2-31

Andrew Hayes uses deconstructed books and metal armatures to make sculptures that celebrate the marriage of these seemingly disparate materials. By separating the paper from the book bindings the pages are free to take on new forms within the metal framework. Hayes says the challenge of working this way is to find “a balance in the two materials” so they become unified as one.

From the Village to Vogue: The Modernist Jewelry of Art Smith
See MODERN SILVER magazine feature:
From the Village to Vogue, The Modernist Jewelry of Art Smith

Long-Term Installation

Decorative Arts Galleries, 4th Floor

This exhibition honors the gift of twenty-one pieces of silver and gold jewelry created by the Brooklyn-reared modernist jeweler Arthur Smith (1917–1982), primarily from Charles Russell, Smith’s companion and heir.

The presentation of Art Smith jewelry is enhanced by archival material from the artist’s estate, such as sketches, the original shop sign, Smith’s tools, and period photographs of models wearing the jewelry, along with thirty pieces of modernist jewelry from the permanent collection by such artists as Elsa Freund, Claire Falkenstein, Ed Weiner, and Frank Rebajes.

Inspired by surrealism, biomorphicism, and primitivism, Art Smith’s jewelry is dynamic in its size and form. Although sometimes massive in scale, his jewelry remains lightweight and wearable. The jewelry dates from the late 1940s to the 1970s and includes his most famous pieces, such as a “Patina” necklace inspired by the mobiles of Alexander Calder; a “Lava” bracelet, or cuff, that extends over the entire lower arm in undulating and overlapping forms; and a massive ring with three semi-precious stones that stretches over three fingers.

Trained at Cooper Union, Art Smith, an African American, opened his first shop on Cornelia Street in Greenwich Village in 1946. One of the leading modernist jewelers of the mid-twentieth century, Smith was also an active supporter of black and gay civil rights, an avid jazz enthusiast, and a supporter of early black modern dance groups.

From the Village to Vogue is organized by Barry R. Harwood, Curator of Decorative Arts, Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition is supported by the Harold S. Keller Fund with additional support from the Donald and Mary Oenslager Fund.

Jewelry Highlights

The Museum of Arts and Design's jewelry collection began soon after the Museum was founded in 1956, documenting the development of studio jewelry from its origins in the post-World War II era to the present day. Drawing from a collection of nearly 500 jewelry pieces, these selected highlights demonstrate the development and diversity of the art of jewelry, ranging from the pioneering work of early American Studio Jewelers, such as Sam Kramer and Arthur Smith, to the groundbreaking and nontraditional methods of contemporary artists like Rebecca Strzelec.

Metal Highlights

MAD is fortunate to possess a rich assemblage of works in metal by an international roster of artists. Technically diverse, the collection represents a variety of approaches to form, whether it is a hand-raised teapot by Danish-trained artist John Prip, electroformed decanters by Chunghi Choo, or a constructed cabinet by Jim Rose. Sculptural metalwork, far removed from its functional origins and using woven or coiled methods, is found in the works of Jenny Edlund and Jin-Sook So. For other artists like Myra Mimlitsch-Gray, sculpture has become a means of commentary and humor, as seen in her traditionally-raised and perpetually-melting teapot. Jewelry has been a fast-growing aspect of the permanent collection as well. The Museum’s collection of early modernist jewelry by Margaret de Patta and Betty Cooke are perennial favorites, while the brilliant woven examples by Mary Lee Hu never fail to amaze.

Museum of the City of New York

Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced
Opens Mar 22 - July 28, 2013

Stephen Burrows: When Fashion Danced is the first major examination of the work of the designer The New York Times called in 1977 the “brightest star of American fashion.” It looks at the period spanning the 1970s when Stephen Burrows’s meteoric rise to fame made him not only the first African-American designer to gain international stature, but a celebrated fashion innovator whose work helped define the look of a generation. With vibrant colors, metallic fabrics, and slinky silhouettes that clung to the body, Burrows’s danceable designs generated a vibrant look that was of a piece with the glamorous, liberated nightlife of the era. Through photographs, drawings, and original garments, the exhibition will trace Burrows’s evolution from creating eclectic looks for his friends in the 1960s to his work with the chic 57th Street retailer Henri Bendel to the floor of Studio 54, as he dressed such 70s style icons as Cher, Liza Minnelli, and Diana Ross.

Gilded New York

Opens Nov 13, 2013

Inaugurating the Museum’s Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery, Gilded New York explores the city’s visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. In New York, this era was marked by the sudden rise of industrial and corporate wealth, amassed by such titans as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Jay Gould, who expressed their high status through extravagant fashions, architecture, and interior design. The exhibition presents a lavish display of some 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects, all created between the mid-1870s and the early 20th century. The dazzling works in the exhibition will illuminate an era when members of the new American aristocracy often displayed their wealth in storied balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and hotels. It was a time when New York became the nation’s corporate headquarters and a popular Ladies’ Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence.

Traveling Exhibits

Desert Jewels: North African Jewelry and Photography from the Xavier Guerrand-Hermes Collection

The North African collection of jewelry and photography assembled by Xavier Guerrand-Hermès over several decades provides insight into the region’s changing societies. The wide range of jewelry illustrates the diversity and enduring beauty of North Africa’s artistic traditions, while the compelling images show daily life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  

In the elaborate jewelry worn by North African women, a profusion of pendants, colored enamels, and precious or semi-precious stones transforms the pieces into flamboyant and conspicuous works of art. Women receive jewelry from their husbands when they marry, and they wear them as symbolic expressions of social codes and identity. In certain shapes and materials, jewelry is seen as a way to protect the wearer. The hand, or khamsa, is considered a potent shield against the evil eye.  

Beginning in the 1860s European photographers set up studios in the major cities of North Africa, photographing women wearing their extraordinary jewels, as well as recording markets, ancient archaeological sites, and landscapes. The images were mounted on cabinet cards into the 1890s, when the format was replaced by picture postcards. Studios also sold larger prints of photographs which were acquired by European tourists, artists, and collectors. Works from some of the most famous photographers of the time, including Étienne and Louis Neurdein, J. Pascal Sebah, A. Cavilla, J. Garrigues, and George Washington Wilson, are part of this collection.

Out of this World! Jewelry in the Space Age 

Coming Soon to the Jewelry Gallery: March 16 - September 7, 2013:

Depictions of bodies in outer space have appeared in jewelry since ancient times. The influence of the space race beginning in the late 1950s had a major impact on jewelry design and continues to do so today. This exhibition will trace space images in jewelry from the Georgian period through today and will include fine and costume jewelry from the 1960s through the present, jewelry being made by contemporary studio artists influenced by space, jewelry made from materials created by NASA for space exploration, jewelry with materials that came from space and jewelry flown in space by astronauts and more. A great exhibition to bring the whole family.

Curated by Elyse Zorn Karlin, Co-Director of the Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts.

The Gregg Museum of Arts and Science

Metalwork in the Permanent Collection of the Gregg Museum

As sculpture, jewelry, and functional objects, metal is the newest area of interest in the University’s collection. Recently the Gregg has presented work by prominent jeweler and designer Mary Ann Scherr and her daughter Sydney, while its exhibition Samuel Yellin: A Legacy in Iron presented the lifework of America’s most significant metalworker. In 2003, the Gregg hosted a lifelong retrospective exhibition by renowned North Carolina artist and East Carolina University professor Robert Ebendorf. In 2004, the Gregg again featured metalwork with the exhibitions Rings and Elizabeth Brim: Steel Magnolia. Through both gift and purchase, the Gregg seeks to acquire more prime examples of historic silver, brass, bronze and iron objects, as well as contemporary metal sculpture and jewelry in order to fulfill the Metals Collection’s goals.

Soundforge

May 16, 2013 – September 21, 2013

Curated by: Anna Walker

Soundforge continues the Museum’s SoundCraft series with a multimedia installation, the result of a two-year collaboration between metalsmith Gabriel Craig and composer Michael Remson. The installation combines video, audio, and sculptural elements in an interactive piece that explores forging metal as an act of fabrication and percussion. Audiences are invited to use custom hand-carved wooden mallets to play hand-forged steel keyed instruments. As each key is tuned to complement the musical score, it is through striking the keys that viewers successfully engage and complete the work.

The Museum’s collection also includes works in glass, metal, fiber and wood. With an emphasis on modest works – many created at the beginning of artists’ careers – the collection reflects the Museum’s role in the Northwest’s rich craft heritage.

The Gallery at Museum of Contemporary Craft is the premier showcase for fine craft in the Pacific Northwest. Located in The Pearl, Portland’s central cultural district, The Gallery represents artists working in ceramics, glass, wood, metal, fiber and mixed media. Here you’ll find the perfect handmade gift or an exquisite piece to add to your collection.

The Gallery represents over 100 regional and nationally noted artisans. Offerings include jewelry and accessories, bowls and vessels, sculptural works and functional wares. Talk with one of our staff to learn about the artists and their creations, ask about gift registry and national and international shipping.

Philadelphia

Rodin Museum
 

Largest collection of Auguste Rodin sculptures outside France.

Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917) brought monumental public sculpture into the modern era. Though he was well acquainted with the academic traditions and idealized subjects of classical and Renaissance sculpture, Rodin's aim in his work was to be absolutely faithful to nature. His uncanny ability to convey movement and to show the inner feelings of the men and women he portrayed, the bravura of his light-catching modeling, and his extraordinary use of similar figures in different mediums, have established him as one of the greatest sculptors of all time.

The Rodin Museum was the gift of movie theater magnate Jules Mastbaum (American, 1872–1926) to the city of Philadelphia. Mastbaum began collecting works by Rodin in 1923 with the intent of founding a museum to enrich the lives of his fellow citizens. Just three years later, he had assembled the largest collection of Rodin's works outside Paris, including bronze castings, plaster studies, drawings, prints, letters, and books. In 1926, Mastbaum commissioned French architects Paul Cret and Jacques Gréber to design the Museum building and gardens. Unfortunately, the collector did not live to see his dream realized, but his widow honored his commitment to the city, and the Museum was inaugurated on November 29, 1929.

Subject to Change: Art and Design in the Twentieth Century

The new Paula and Leonard Granoff Galleries in the 1926 Radeke Building display masterworks of painting, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, drawings, photographs, costume, textiles and industrial design from 1900 to 2000, all drawn from the Museum's permanent collection. From the work of Henri Matisse and Frank Lloyd Wright to that of Andy Warhol, Lynda Benglis and Ettore Sottsass, the objects convey the last century's revolutionary changes in art and design, as well as the tremendous impact of technology.

The conceptual design for the exhibition, created by Sandra Wheeler and Alfred Zollinger [RISD '90, Architecture] of Matter Practice, uses cantilevered forms to highlight the relationship between art and architecture. Ed Wojcik [RISD '87, Architecture] Architects restored the beaux-arts elegance of the original architecture. These galleries connect to the Chace Center via The Museum Associates Glass Bridge.

Sensuous Steel: Art Deco Automobiles
June 14-September 15, 2013

An exhibition of Art Deco automobiles from some of the most renowned car collections in the United States.

Rose on 65th Street (2011)

In view at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts' Broadway Street entrance through the end of 2013, Rose on 65th Street (2011) is from a series of thirty-eight sculptures of gigantic roses created by New York artist Will Ryman. Arrayed along New York City’s Park Avenue from January 25 through May 31, 2011, the colossal flowers, each painted in a primary color or bright pink, stood in startling contrast to the towering buildings and busy traffic of the street.

A native New Yorker, Ryman has long been interested in creating experiences of delight by placing comically distorted and often outsized forms into both indoor and outdoor architectural sites. He says, “I always try to combine fantasy with reality. In the case of The Roses, I tried to convey New York City’s larger than life qualities through scale; creating blossoms which are imposing, humorous, and hopefully beautiful.”

Form/Unformed: Design from 1960 to the Present

Tower Gallery
December 19, 2010–December 2013

Included in general admission to the Museum

Including over thirty works drawn largely from the Museum’s collections dating from the 1960s to the present, this exhibition reveals the transformation of ideology and forms that have shaped international design of the last half century. From the technological and formal ideals of modernism to the influence of the handmade object, the works reflect increasingly complex and vibrant relationships between concepts of function, aesthetics, and material expression. Featured are designs by Verner Panton, Frank Gehry, Aldo Rossi, Ettore Sottsass, Robert Venturi, Donald Judd, Zaha Hadid, Louise Campbell, and Fernando and Humberto Campana.  

Form/Unformed: Design from 1960 to the Present is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art. The presentation is made possible by TWO X TWO for AIDS and Art, an annual fundraising event that jointly benefits amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research and the Dallas Museum of Art. Air transportation is provided by American Airlines.

The Dallas Museum of Art is supported in part by the generosity of Museum members and donors and by the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas/Office of Cultural Affairs and the Texas Commission on the Arts.

Margarita Cabrera
For the next two years, from August 2011 until August 2013, the El Paso Museum of Art will feature eleven artworks from the last ten years by the Monterrey, Mexico born artist Margarita Cabrera. Cabrera first became known for her soft-sculptures of commercial products such as coffeemakers and blenders manufactured at US-owned maquiladoras in Mexico to serve as reminders of the labor involved. In time Cabrera’s concern for the role of laborers who build American products outside the United States outgrew her interest in the objects themselves, and she began to organize projects that involved the work of artisans from immigrant communities. Cabrera’s Arbol de la Vida John Deere Model 790 is the result of a project involving the creation of a life-size replica of a John Deere tractor in clay, the "tree of life" for many workers in the agricultural community. Cabrera's cross-cultural perspective allows her artistic practice to involve the political, social and emotional aspects of two distinct, yet closely connected cultures. Cabrera lives and works in El Paso.

Arts of Islamic Lands: Selections from The al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait

Jan 26, 2013 - Jan 26, 2014
Law Building, Ground Floor
1001 Bissonnet

About the exhibition

Islamic masterworks from Kuwait’s renowned al-Sabah Collection come to the MFAH as part of a long-term collaboration with the cultural institution Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah (DAI). The privately held al-Sabah Collection is one of the greatest collections of Islamic art in the world, and the partnership initiates a historic exchange of objects, staff, and expertise.

Among the highlights showcased in this display are spectacular Mughal jewelry, illuminated manuscripts, exquisite ceramics, and intricately decorated ceiling panels. More than 60 examples from the 8th to 18th centuries are on view, made in the Iberian Peninsula, North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia. The collection also includes carpets, glass and metalwork, paintings, architectural fragments, scientific instruments, and works on paper.

This exhibition marks the first in a renewable, five-year agreement that enables the MFAH to present the glorious achievement of Islamic visual culture in a comprehensive display. The legendary al-Sabah Collection was founded by Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah and his wife, Sheikha Hussah Sabah al-Salem al-Sabah. The collection preserves and presents all aspects of Islamic art and comprises more than 30,000 pieces.

Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897–1907

Sep 29, 2013 - Jan 12, 2014

The MFAH presents the first museum retrospective in the United States devoted to Austrian artist and designer Koloman Moser. Instrumental in the modern-design revolution that swept Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, Moser (1868–1918) worked across varied types of media, in both two and three dimensions. His art is often characterized by precise geometric styles and frequently uses a black-and-white grid pattern.

Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna 1897–1907 surveys the sum of Moser’s decorative-arts career through more than 200 objects, from jewelry, metalwork, glass, and ceramics to furniture, textiles, prints, and designs for architectural interiors. The exhibition comes to Houston following its premiere at the Neue Galerie in New York City.

Albert Paley is one of the world’s foremost metalworkers, with a career spanning more than four decades. Paley made jewelry for an incredibly prolific 10 years, during which he set new standards for American jewelry with his large-scale, humanistic, technically superior, and ornamental works designed to work with the body, not merely to decorate it.

The Tool at Hand

May 31, 2013 — September 8, 2013
In the Large Gallery

Organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum in collaboration with the Chipstone Foundation and curated by Ethan W. Lasser (then Curator of the Chipstone Foundation and now the Margaret S. Winthrop Associate Curator of American Art at Harvard Art Museums), The Tool at Hand brings together artworks resulting from an unusual and slightly eccentric experiment. In the spring of 2011, the Chipstone Foundation invited 16 contemporary artists to participate in the Object Lab, the foundation’s progressive and experimental arm, to make a work of art with one tool alone. The resulting exhibition features a variety of creative and witty artworks, presented together with images of the tools used to craft them and a short explanatory video produced by each artist.

The Tool at Hand features artists in varying stages of their careers who hail from both the U.S. and the U.K. Working in a variety of materials, including paint, metal, wood, glass, fiber, and clay, the artists range from those who work with non-traditional tools to those whose skill with traditional tools is in a class by itself.

CTRL + P

May 31, 2013 — September 8, 2013
In the Small Gallery

Recent economic reports speculate that a third industrial revolution, shaped by digital technologies, is underway. This summer, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) investigates the implications of such technologies on the making of sculptural and functional objects in the 21st century.  Ctrl + P, on view May 31 – September 8, in the small gallery, features work by several contemporary artists who use open-source programs and 3D printers to conceptualize and create in revolutionary ways.

Using digital technology as a tool to create is not new to all artists, but only in recent years have open-source programs, computer-aided design programs and 3D printers become more available and affordable to the average maker.  HCCC Curator, Anna Walker, is eager to present work that shows the potential of using such technologies.  Walker explains, “By sourcing their designs from online creative commons, the artists featured in Ctrl + P question issues of shared authorship, decentralization of labor, and the possibility of making entire industries available to the individual. Given that the late 20th century, in many ways, emphasized and celebrated the role of the individual maker, Ctrl + P explores how these technologies will contribute to the widespread embrace of communal authorship in the future.”

Created in 2007 by Erin Gardner and Margaret Drinkwater, The Opulent Project is a collective of metal and jewelry artists working in Portland, Oregon.  For their Digital Ring project, the collective created contemporary jewelry from found digital designs.  First collecting existing ring designs from a Google 3D warehouse, the artists altered the files to make the jewelry functional and, using the 3D printer, produced wearable rings made from gold-plated stainless steel and silver.  The end products, looking like playful imitations of traditional gemstone rings, cleverly raise questions about commercial jewelry and luxury objects.

Brian Dettmer

May 30-August 18, 2013
Brian Dettmer is an internationally renown sculptor who uses outdated, mass-produced books as the medium for his craft.  The artist carefully slices through books such as old encyclopedias and medical guides, revealing words, patterns and images. Individual ideas and thoughts are separated from their original context and rejoined to allow them new possibilities of meaning. What is left behind is a stunning, visual prose.  Dettmer has exhibited at insitutions world-wide, such as Museum of Arts and Design (New York), Museum of Contemporary Art (Georgia), Museum Rijswiijh (Netherlands) and Wellcome Collection (England). Watch a CBS Interview with Brian Dettmer.

American Bronzes from the Corcoran Gallery of Art

This installation of more than 30 bronze sculptures from the Corcoran’s world-renowned collection of American art highlights works dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries by such masters of the medium as Elie Nadelman, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and Alexander Phimister Proctor (sculptor of Washington’s Buffalo Bridge)Works by women sculptors are a particular strength of the Corcoran’s collection, including those by Harriet. Whitney Frishmuth, Abastenia St. Leger Eberle, Anna Hyatt Huntington, and Bessie Potter Vonnoh. The exhibition also features popular favorites such as western bronzes by Frederic Remington, a Civil War group by John Rogers, and sculptures by artists better known for their paintings, such as Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent.

Sculpture from the Mouse House: The Olga Hirshhorn Collection at the Corcoran
on view now

Even before her marriage to one of the most astute art collectors of the 20th century, Olga Hirshhorn had long been accumulating objects on her own. While her first collections consisted of hats, hair combs, furniture, and jewelry, they pointed the way to her lifelong commitment to art. She is a passionate collector with an extraordinary breadth of interest in small scale objects at the forefront of artistic thought or steeped in traditional culture, from artists both renowned and little-known. From Cypriot, African, and pre-Columbian antiquities to sculpture, paintings, and works on paper by contemporary masters, Hirshhorn has amassed a treasure trove of primarily small and domestic-scale objects that demonstrates her searching, critical eye and sensitivity to a wide range of forms and styles.

Peru: Kingdoms of the Sun and the Moon
October 17, 2013–January 5, 2014
SAM Simonyi Special Exhibition Galleries

SAM is honored to host a major exhibition of Peruvian art that includes rarely seen sculpture, metalwork, painting and textiles spanning 3,000 years. Visitors will be introduced to the rich heritage of ancient Peru, including superb works of the Mochica, Chimu and Inca cultures. Important paintings and sculptures from the Colonial and Vice-royal eras demonstrate the initial influence of Christianity, seen in radiant paintings of saints and liturgical processions. Artworks created after independence from Spain show the creative syncretism between indigenous and Spanish traditions, followed by examples of the rich aesthetic of 20th-century paintings and folk art. Taking a novel approach to Peruvian art, the thematic organization reveals cross currents of ideas and artistry through time and the symbolic role that art plays in the construction of cultural identity.

Peru: Kingdoms of the Sun and the Moon and accompanying catalogue bring together new research by well-known scholars in many fields. Select examples from SAM’s collection will also be on view.

This special installation of objects from the Seattle Art Museum's collection will feature the glittering golden threads of French brocades, Imperial Chinese robes, Japanese kesas, and Persian bedcovers—all seen as rich backdrops to gleaming objects of beauty, such as powdered-gold lacquer boxes, a Fabergé cigarette case, a seated Buddha with gold inlay, and African hammered-gold earrings.

Opened in 2007, SAM’s large textile gallery offers an enlightening and intriguing opportunity to exhibit textiles with decorative and designed objects from across cultures and times. In addition to fulfilling SAM’s vision of connecting art to life, this selection will offer many works, long in storage, to now dazzle us in the light of day.

Twenty-First Century Heirlooms
April 28 - September 15, 2013
 

The notion of an heirloom often describes objects “passed down” to family and friends. It suggests an intimate connection or—at a minimum—a relationship between something past and something present (and, hopefully, something future). This exhibition will use the work of contemporary artists to investigate heirlooms as ideas—as links between generations and communities, as concepts to modify or embellish, as techniques to master or modify, and as objects to treasure or refuse.



Featuring artists at various phases in their careers and objects crafted from a variety of different media, Twenty-First Century Heirlooms is a large-scale exhibition that offers a context for exploring what we value today and why. From brooches that use famous Western paintings as reference points to sculptures made of accumulations of recycled twentieth-century pressed glass, as well as fast food containers made of silver, the work included in this show expands and challenges how we define heirlooms in the twenty-first century.
