Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection

(Sunday) (Sunday)

Exhibition. March 19–July 30, 2017. This exhibition brings together work made in the past decade by more than a dozen artists. These recent additions to the Museum’s collection explore the unrest, anxiety, and critical reflection that characterizes our world. Responding to today’s fierce identity politics and crises of truth, the exhibition includes artworks that construct imagined scenarios or use observation of real events in subjective depictions. In particular, the works consider the vagaries of state violence, the implications of global capitalism, and the contemporary reverberations of transatlantic slavery. These artists look back to traditions both within and beyond the visual arts, such as readymade sculpture, film montage, and folk storytelling, to imagine possibilities for an uncertain future. The exhibition includes works by John Akomfrah, Jonathas de Andrade, Anna Boghiguian, Samuel Fosso, Iman Issa, Cameron Rowland, Wolfgang Tillmans, Kara Walker, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, among others.
