Art for Art's Sake

Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation


August 26–November 24, 2013


Art for Art's Sake was the rallying cry of the 19th-century Aesthetic Movement, which believed that art should be enjoyed for its pure visual qualities. This exhibition reexamines this concept in a group of contemporary artists whose art focuses on sumptuous beauty and pure visual effects. Works by Mark Chariker, Iva Gueorguieva, Brian Porray, and Ali Smith allow us to revive Whistler's ideal that art should "appeal solely to the artistic sense of the eye."

Works will be on view at the Weisman Museum in the Gregg G. Juarez Gallery, West Gallery, and Wilson Gallery.
