20/21: Modern and Contemporary Art from the Benton's Collection
A continuation of From Old Masters to Revolutionaries, this exhibition introduces some of the Benton's newest acquisitions including a painting by Mike Bayne and a mixed media portrait by Keun Young Park, both active contemporary artists. They join the illustrious company of Dieter Roth, Willem De Kooning, and Richard Diebenkorn. Also exciting about this exhibition are the number and types of photographs on display. From the overtly political images of Sebastio Salgado and Graciela Iturbide to the aesthetic beauty of Candida Hfer or Shimon Attie's site-specific projections, the photographs in this exhibition demonstrate the versatility of the medium and invite viewers to question its objectivity and truthfulness.
