Upcoming Exhibitions

ICELAND: Artists Respond to Place

In the Beitzel and Righter Galleries
June 29 – September 28, 2014

This will be the first museum exhibition in the United State to focus exclusively on the rich and complex relationship of contemporary Icelandic artists to the singular geography of Iceland—one of the most geologically phenomenal and dynamic places on earth. The exhibition will center on 12 to 15 leading contemporary artists whose works cover a broad range of formal approaches and media, including painting, photography, sculpture, site-specific wall-drawings, and video installations. All artwork in the exhibition will date from the past ten years. (KMA originated exhibition)
