About this Exhibition

Drawn from museum purchases and an extraordinary recent gift of 172 contemporary artworks from an anonymous donor, this exhibition builds on the Mead’s first and most comprehensive contemporary art exhibition, presented in fall 2019. Spanning four decades, from the 1980s to 2019, the exhibition highlights how artists experiment with media and use historical events, ideas, and images to address politics and the nature of art. Featured artists include Heather Agyepong, Moira Dryer, Mark Fox, Al Hansen, Analia Saban, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya.

We're pleased to offer a virtual tour of this exhibition. Click here to view art up close and read wall labels.
