Upcoming Exhibitions

Tri-State Juried Exhibition

In the Beitzel and Righter Galleries
January 18 – February 15, 2015

One of the most popular showcases of local talent, the triennial exhibition features the work of select artists from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut whose work is appearing in our galleries for the first time. At once an acknowledgement of the creative versatility of our region, the exhibition serves to bring our community to the attention of national critics and participants. Major artists whose work is standard fare in art history seminars have juried this prestigious triennial and are join by leading curators in their efforts. Staffers from MoMA, the New Museum, Yale and the Guggenheim come to Katonah to do their work. Past jurors include curators Eugenie Tsai, Thelma Golden, Nan Rosenthal, Elizabeth Sussman, and Robert Storr, as well as artists Benny Andrews and Donald Sultan.

 

Chris Larson: The Katonah Relocation Project

In the Sculpture Garden and Project Gallery
March 22 – June 28, 2015

The Katonah Relocation Project is an ambitious architectural project related to Edward Larrabee Barnes. Larson works on a dramatic scale and is known for his aspiring constructions that respond to architectural environments and histories. Using the Katonah Museum of Art’s beautiful Barnes-designed building as a point of departure, Larson will create a large white structure for the sculpture garden inspired by Barnes’ private residence in Mt. Kisco. Towering Norwegian spruce located in the sculpture garden will appear to pierce the building, literally bringing nature into its composition. Visitors will be able to walk inside the full-size structure and explore it from within. It will provide both a dramatic addition and historically related (temporary) addition to the campus. Indoors in the Project Gallery, a full history of the move, an introduction to Larson’s work and an overview of Barnes and his seminal role in modern museum architecture will be shown.
