DESCRIPTION

 

Housed in a former parachute harness factory, the 25,000 square foot museum was designed by Max Gordon in association with Bill Katz and is devoted to the exhibition and study of the contemporary art collection of Emily Fisher Landau. The core of the 1,500 work collection spans 1960 to the present and contains key works by artists who have shaped the most significant art of the last 40 years, including Richard Artschwager, Donald Baechler, John Baldessari, Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Neil Jenney, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Sherrie Levine, Glenn Ligon, Agnes Martin, Robert Rauschenberg, Susan Rothenberg, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith, Mark Tansey, and Cy Twombly.

Emily Fisher Landau's insightful selection of works by contemporary masters, many of which she bought from the artists early in their careers, and her ongoing commitment to emerging artists, is reflected in exhibitionspresented at the Fisher Landau Center for Art.
