The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is proud to announce the opening of What’s New? Modern and Contemporary Art at the Lyman Allyn. Focusing on paintings, sculptures, prints drawings and photographs, this exhibition highlights key recent acquisitions to the Museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition will be on view October 7, 2017 through April 1, 2018.
Eclectic and varied, the 30 works of art on view will offer a cross-section of some of the subjects, styles and concerns of artists working from the second half of the 20th century to the present. Established and renowned artists are represented in the exhibition, including Romare Bearden, Nan Goldin, David Hockney, Robert Rauschenberg, and Bruce Nauman, as well as emerging, lesser-known artists who reflect the energy and diversity of the contemporary market. Together, these objects offer a lens for considering issues of identity, race, gender, and politics, as well as exploring formal matters of line, color, process, and material.
