Concentrations 57: Slavs and Tatars

7/18/14 to 12/14/14 | Focus I Gallery
Slavs and Tatars, founded in 2006, is an art collective whose installations, lecture-performances, sculptures and publications contemplate the lesser-known similarities found in the mix of belief systems and rituals among peoples of the Caucasus, Central Asia and Eastern Europe. For Concentrations 57: Slavs and Tatars, the collective presents new work from their current series entitled Long Legged Linguistics, an ongoing investigation of language as a source of political, metaphysical and even sexual emancipation.

Isa Genzken: Retrospective

Isa Genzken: Retrospective is the first comprehensive retrospective of this artist’s epically diverse body of work in an American museum, and the largest to date.

The Museum Is History

The Museum Is History is drawn from the DMA’s acclaimed holdings of modern and contemporary art as well as from local collections. The works on view in The Museum Is History roughly span the years 1950 to 1990. Beginning with gestural abstraction, the exhibition turns to those artists who wanted to rethink the role of art-making materials and tools and to those who embraced a reductive vocabulary with elegant symmetry.
