DESCRIPTION

The Nasher Museum presents an exhibition of recent acquisitions of contemporary art and other highlights from the permanent collection. Sound Vision includes paintings, works on paper, photography, video, installation and sculpture. The exhibition reflects a collecting strategy that is ambitious for a museum so new, with a focus on artists who may be emerging or undervalued, but have nonetheless created some of the most important work of our time. The work of younger artists, often connected to the museum through exhibitions, is juxtaposed with established artists who have greatly influenced the art of the 21st century. The growing collection, with a special interest in artists of African descent, reflects  the museum’s location in Durham, an entrepreneurial community with a rich history and 40-percent African American population. Artists in the exhibition include Njideka Akunyili, Sanford Biggers, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Taiyo Kimura, Christian Marclay, Kerry James Marshall, Zanele Muholi, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Dario Robleto, Nari Ward, Andy Warhol, Carrie Mae Weems and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
