Bob Thompson: This House Is Mine

July 20, 2021 - January 9, 2022

The first museum exhibition devoted to the artist Bob Thompson in more than twenty years, This House Is Mine traces the artist’s brief but prolific transatlantic career, examining his formal inventiveness and his engagement with universal themes of collectivity, bearing witness, struggle, and justice. Over a mere eight years, he grappled with the exclusionary Western canon, developing a lexicon of enigmatic forms that he threaded through his work.

Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948–1960

February 11 - June 6, 2021

Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948–1960 tells the story of an ambitious young artist who experimented with materials and processes, critiqued social mores and mythic conceptions of US history through his satirical artworks, and ultimately found fame by helping to launch a global art movement. It reveals a largely unacknowledged through line, linking Lichtenstein’s early riffs on history painting and representations of the American West, folk art, and gestural abstraction to the later Pop paintings for which he is best known.

Whistler: Streetscapes, Urban Change

June 3 - October 22, 2023

This exhibition features works by artist James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903) focused upon urban sites undergoing rapid transformation during the Victorian era. Despite the artist’s aversion to overtly narrative or political themes, his city subjects reveal a long-term engagement with social and economic forces. Whistler: Streetscapes, Urban Change invites us to consider the multivalent implication of paintings, drawings, and prints that silently witnessed the struggles of the working poor, at the same time romanticizing poverty for a rising middle-class art market.
