Process and Reality

Contemporary Art from the Permanent Collection

May 13 – August 6, 2017

Celebrating 25 Years of Acquisitions

Over the past decades contemporary artists have explored these two key themes. Process reflects artists' interest in their own practice and methods. Reality remains a touchstone, a way of retaining contact with and commenting upon our everyday world. Including work by seminal artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jonathan Borofsky, Tim Hawkinson, Ed Keinholz, Mike Kelley, and Ed Moses, this exhibition offers a fascinating overview of vital trends in the art of our time.


This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Op artist Julian Stanczak (1928–2017), subject of a fifty-year retrospective at the Weisman Museum of Art in 2001.
