> DESCRIPTION


This exhibition brings historical works from the Bass Museum together with contemporary works borrowed from renowned local and national collections to create a dialogue between the past and present. Included in the exhibition are works by 17th, 18th, and 19th century masters such as Delacroix, Rubens, Goya, Rigaud and Hoppner, which are shown juxtaposed with pioneering artists of our day such as Joseph Beuys, Charles Ledray, Byron Kim, Jonathan Monk and Eve Sussman.

This exhibition illustrates that all art, regardless of when it was created, is contemporary because it reflects a precise moment in time and communicates the issues surrounding the artists, whether spiritual, political, economic or cultural.

Guest curator: Steve Holmes,
Curator of the Cartin Collection in Hartford, Connecticut.
