Transitions and Transformations
Transitions and Transformations transforms Remember to React, the previous installation of NSU Art Museum’s collection, with the addition of new acquisitions, other works from the collection and works on loan to the Museum. The exhibition will continue to change over the course of the year as works are added and removed. Many works incorporate the element of time or suggest the passing of time. Others represent physical transformations, as well as turning points in the history of contemporary art.
Artworks from the collection include those by: Cecily Brown, Elaine de Kooning, Teresita Fernandez, Theaster Gates, Genevieve Gaignard, Phillip Guston, Christian Holstad, Jim Lambe, Glenn Ligon, Zanele Muholi, Catherine Opie, Zilia Sanchez, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, Mickalene Thomas, Michael Vasquez and others. Among the works on loan is Cookie’s Doll, one of Julian Schnabel’s early broken plate paintings. Transitions and Transformations is curated by NSU Art Museum Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater.
