Art, like language, can express ideas in a multitude of ways. This exhibition of approximately 100 works from the museum’s permanent collection explores the diverse visual languages artists employ to depict specific themes. Organized thematically, the exhibition includes well-known works in various media as well as key pieces that have not been on display in recent years. Each section addresses themes in more depth, such as mythology, domestic space, the artist’s studio, abstraction, landscape and seascape, the city and industry and the figure, including portraits, group portraits and nudes. To showcase the continued growth of our permanent collection, Languages of Art features recent acquisitions, including work by Hans Hofmann and Stanton Macdonald-Wright, among others.
