All in One: Selections from the Alex Katz Foundation Collection

September 20th, 2022 - June 11, 2023

In recent decades, Alex Katz has expanded his support of visual artists through the work of the Alex Katz Foundation, which has placed nearly 500 outstanding artworks with the Colby College Museum of Art. This installation of the Katz Foundation Collection explores the idea of visual polyphony. On view are artworks that experiment with opposing formal elements that create unexpected unities; richly material gestures that produce multisensory, bodily experiences; and explorations of dancers and choreography that put patterns of movement into action.
