An Enduring Vision: Photographs from the Lane Collection
Open through March 30, 2014
This exhibition celebrates the Lane Collection, renowned for its deep holdings of the work of major American modernist photographers, including Charles Sheeler, Edward Weston, and Ansel Adams—and given to the MFA by Saundra Lane in 2012. In addition to the early 20th-century American works assembled by William H. and Saundra B. Lane in the 1960s and ’70s, the collection includes photographs that Saundra Lane acquired after her husband’s death in 1995. This wide-ranging group includes works by early European master William Henry Fox Talbot, the 19th-century inventor of positive-negative photography, all the way up to contemporary artists, among them Robert Adams, Francesca Woodman, Kenro Izu, Irving Penn, and others working today.
Open through May 26, 2014
From pinking shears to pink ribbons, the color pink is associated with fashion and femininity; perhaps no other color has as much social significance and gender association. The fascinating exhibition "Think Pink" explores the history and changing meanings of the color as its popularity ebbed and flowed in fashion and visual culture from the 18th century to the present day.
American Gestures: Abstract Expressionism
Open through June 1, 2014
American art of the 1940s and ’50s was dominated by the gestural style known as Abstract Expressionism. In love with spontaneity and happy accidents, and favoring inspiration from the subconscious, artists invented a highly original American art language that triumphed internationally. "American Gestures" features drawings, prints, paintings, and sculpture from the late 1940s to the ’70s by Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, David Smith, Mark Tobey, Alfred Leslie, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, and a number of others. Many of these works are relatively recent acquisitions, some shown here for the first time.
