During the 1990s American artist Shimon Attie presented a series of temporary installations in European cities that dealt with absence and legacies of the Holocaust. For The Neighbor Next Door (1995), Attie projected archival film footage from World War II onto Amsterdam sidewalks.

In the late 20th century, artists working in both the former East and West Germany were finding meaningful ways to address both the past and the present in their artworks. Even when it was not directly or overtly political, German art created 20 to 60 years after the end of World War II has been informed by a climate of political division (until 1989) and the specter of history.

Joseph Beuys was one of the most radical artists of the 20th century and a prominent spokesperson of postwar German art. He made actions, sculptures, and multiples, professing that art should be a way of life. In December 1974, Beuys traveled to Diani Beach on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya with friend and photographer Charles Wilp. Beuys drew his distinctive motifs, such as animals and alchemical...   [more]

The fiber art of Chicago artist Theo Leffmann evokes the ancient and the exotic, echoing pre-Columbian and non-Western processes and forms with a distinct personal vision. Leffmann’s 40-year-career coincided with a revolution in textile art in the mid-20th century, as divisions between “high art,” such as painting and sculpture, and craft diminished. This display of Leffmann's colorful, richly...   [more]

British-born, Scotland-raised artist Martin Creed (b. 1968, Wakefield, UK) once set runners off in a jog around an exhibition; he inserted nails at different distances from the wall to create a tiny installation about scale but also created a 15-foot tall neon sign that spelled out the phrase “small things.” His 2001 Turner Prize-winning installation at the Tate Britain, Work No. 227, turned the light...   [more]

Despite the periodic ringing of the death knell for painting, this genre of art-making is alive and well. The ambivalence toward the ‘artist’s hand’ inspired the title of this exhibition, which brings together a wide cross-section of painterly activity by artists who are defining the terms by which we understand this tradition today. Drawn primarily from the MCA Collection, the exhibition shows that a ske...   [more]

Heidi Norton captures elements in flux, often using living plants or remnants of her own artworks to create new compositions. Building up sculptures on large sheets of glass, Norton embeds common houseplants in layers of resin, paint, or colored wax. Suspended within the sculpture, the uprooted plants eventually wilt and die, their color shifting in the process. In contrast, Norton’s photographs dep...   [more]

For the cover of The Smiths' first single, Morrissey chose a photograph of a male nude taken in the early 1970s that he found while parsing a semi-art historical survey of male nudes through the ages. The cover cropped the image slightly -- something that all The Smiths' covers ended up doing -- leaving off a little of the model's thighs, and the credit to gay porn pioneer Jim French.Bodies don't...   [more]
