DESCRIPTION

Forty years after the tumultuous and transformative events of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, this exhibition examines the diverse responses, both political and material, of artists in that moment. The exhibit will include the seldom-seen sculpture by Barnett Newman entitled Lace Curtain for Mayor Daley and will bring together approximately forty works from the time, as well as protest posters, film, photographs and documents.

The exhibition and accompanying programs are supported in part by a grant from The Terra Foundation for American Art.
