Presenting works by many noted artists, including Clinton Adams, Dawoud Bey, Richard Diebenkorn, Margaret Evangeline, Damien Hirst, Robert Hudson, Raymond Jonson, Georgia O’Keeffe, Hung Liu, Beatrice Mandelman, Liliana Porter, Louis Ribak, Andy Warhol, and Jean Xceron, amongst others, the exhibition inaugurates the museum’s Jonson Gallery as a permanent collection gallery.

Featuring paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper, such as the Damien Hirst work,Beautiful Disintegrating Obstinate Horror Drawing referenced in the exhibition’s title, the presentation foregrounds the strength of the museum’s collection and introduces a selection of notable recent acquisitions. Among the recent additions are the collection’s first ancient sculptural work, large-scale Andy Warhol prints from the 1980s, and contemporary photographic works by Dawoud Bey and Margaret Evangeline. The exhibition also features highlights of the museum’s modernist painting collection, including recent acquisitions by Taos modernists Bea Mandelman and Louis Ribak, gifted to the museum by the Mandelman-Ribak foundation.
