EXHIBITIONS

AAM @ 60: The Diamond Exhibition

Through July 8

During the Museum’s anniversary year, this exhibition shares with the public many of the treasures from its Permanent Collection. Anke Van Wagenberg, Chief Curator, has selected artworks from among the over 1,500 works in the Permanent Collection for two sequential exhibitions. The Diamond Exhibition will showcase a representative range of works including prints from Goya to Picasso, Rembrandt and Whistler, and selections of its holdings in other media including painting, photography and sculpture.

Elizabeth Casqueiro: Entrances and Exits

Through July 8

This exhibition is an exploration of masked identity in its many forms and purposes. Elizabeth Casqueiro is interested in how from an early age we acquire and shed identities as seamlessly as an accomplished stage actor or a fictional superhero. Through the melding of opacity and translucency, structure and fluidity, and figuration and abstraction, she alludes to identity’s perpetual dance between order and chaos, exposure and concealment, and connection and disruption.

New Photography: National Juried Exhibition

Through July 8

The exhibition aims to highlight the current state of photography across a broad spectrum in this juried show.
