The Season Ahead:

Beatriz González: A Retrospective
One of the most comprehensive displays of Bogotá-based artist Beatriz González’s work to date, this first large-scale U.S. retrospective presents approximately 150 works, with examples from the early 1960s through the present. At 81, González is not only an internationally celebrated Colombian artist but also one of the few extant representatives of the so-called “radical women” generation from Latin America.

Zhao Gang: History Painting
Zhao Gang: History Painting consists of fourteen paintings that bring together the radically multicultural aspects of Chinese artist Zhao Gang’s art and identity. A number of works in the exhibition are displayed salon style in a 130-square-foot “apartment” built inside the exhibition space. The room mimics the 1980s phenomenon of “apartment art,” the exhibition format adopted by the era’s artists in response to their distrust in official government venues.

The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art
Featuring 14 artists from the Caribbean, this thematic group exhibition reflects on the question, “what might a Caribbean future look like?” With a series of newly commissioned works, The Other Side of Now seeks to think beyond narratives of catastrophe that continue to frame the region in terms of then and now. In paintings, installation, videos, and sculptures, these artists illuminate ideas of survival, community, self-acceptance, environmental rights and creative resourcefulness as central to the challenge of imaging trajectories for the Caribbean.
