DESCRIPTION

Case Studies from the Bureau of Contemporary Art will present a number of thematic points of entry into the New Mexico Museum of Art’s contemporary collection. A selections show that includes ceramics, paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture and video, Case Studies considers the disparate hubs of war, figuration, seriality, materiality, and the containment of nature, among other themes, as part of the constellation of work that constitutes the contemporary collection under the fictitious guise of a Bureau of Contemporary Art.

Among the 40+ artists in the exhibition are Dieter Appelt, Erika Blumenfeld, Louise Bourgeois, Sarah Charlesworth, Constance DeJong, Eddie Dominguez, Eva Hesse, Tom Joyce, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, Ana Mendieta, Delilah Montoya, Bruce Nauman, Larry Poons, Meridel Rubenstein and Ellen Zweig, Peter Sarkisian, Peter Voulkos, and Joel-Peter Witkin.
