Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt: Conceptual Color in Print

October 17, 2009March 8, 2010

Donald Judd was a major figure in the Minimalist art movement in the 1960s when he and others sought to create a depersonalized art in which the physical properties of space, scale, and materials were explored as phenomena of interest on their own. Judd’s use of color in three print series dating from 1988 to 1993 are on view along with a recent acquisition, Untitled (1993). Judd’s prints are compared and contrasted with prints by his peer, Sol LeWitt.

Art and Power in the Central African Savanna

June 20, 2009October 12, 2009

This exhibition explores the political and religious power of nearly 60 sculptures created by artists of four Central African cultures: the Luba, Songye, Chokwe, and Luluwa. Carved primarily from wood, these power figures act as containers for magical organic ingredients and serve purposes both religious and political. According to traditional beliefs, the figures mediate between the human and spirit worlds to insure a healthy birth, successful hunt, or triumph over an enemy. A fully-illustrated catalogue by leading expert Constantine Pedridis accompanies the exhibition.
