Dark Visions: Mid-Century Macabre

Exhibition Website

Sep 2 2016 - Jan 16 2017

The twentieth century produced some of the most distinctive, breakthrough art movements: Surrealism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art and Minimalism. 

Many modern and contemporary artists, however, eluded classification, and created works of art that addressed their own inner turmoil or explored dark and sometimes sinister subject matter. Dark Visions: Mid-Century Macabre presents works by Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Cornell, George Herms, Edward Kienholz and others that allow viewers to mine the shadowy recesses of artistic endeavor.
