> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition features modern masterworks from 1909 until 1971. It was a period of great change in the world: the rapid rise of the car, the Great Depression’s economic turmoil, the devastation of two world wars, the advance of television and computers, the civil rights movement. Living the seismic shifts that surrounded them, the artists in this exhibition experimented with unique ways of seeing and explored new ideas about the nature of materials and the nature of artmaking itself. Artists expressed their inner visions, investigated social issues and created new languages of visual expression, with each generation ambitiously building upon and challenging the art that had come before.
