|Lynn Saville: Dark City, Urban America at Night|
Lynn Saville's Dark City photographs illustrate her exploration of urban America between dusk and dawn. In this series, she focuses on evocative spaces that are generally devoid of people. Vacant buildings, shuttered storefronts, and empty streets are the ostensible subjects of her pictures, but the natural cycle of decay and rebirth in urban ecology is at the heart of each of her landscapes of downtowns after dark from New York to Los Angeles.
Into the Night: Modern and Contemporary Art and the Nocturne Tradition
Into the Night: Modern and Contemporary Art and the Nocturne Tradition examines the long tradition of the nocturne in art and how that tradition has expanded to encompass various ways that contemporary artists consider the enigmatic notion of the night. This exhibition is comprised of paintings, photographs, and works on paper that investigate the psychological concepts of darkness, the dreamscape and its connection to the night, and the inter-connectedness of the environment with cultural and artistic discourse.
No Mountains in the Way: Photographs from the Kansas Documentary Survey, 1974
In 1974, with a grant of $5,000 from the NEA, No Mountains in the Way was organized by Jim Enyeart, then curator of photography at the University of Kansas Museum of Art. He and Kansas natives Terry Evans and Larry Schwarm—all artists who have attained considerable achievement in the intervening decades—travelled the state, photographing whatever struck them as representative. Each worked on an assigned theme. Enyeart focused on buildings, Evans on people, and Schwarm on the landscape. Their collective visions combined to poetically reflect place, culture, and custom in Kansas. The exhibition and catalogue were presented in 1975.
|Coney Island: Visions of an American Dreamland 1861 - 2008|
"…the first major exhibition to use visual art as a lens to explore the lure that Coney Island exerted on American culture over a period of 150 years. An extraordinary array of artists viewed Coney Island as a microcosm of the American experience, from its beginnings as a watering hole for the wealthy, through its transformation into an entertainment mecca for the masses, to the closing of Astroland Amusement Park following decades of urban decline."
Affordable New York traces over a century of affordable housing activism, documenting the ways in which reformers, policy makers, and activists have fought to transform their city. A focus on current and future housing initiatives demonstrates how New Yorkers continue to promote subsidized housing as a way to achieve diversity, neighborhood stability, and social justice.
Artists both native to Nebraska and those traveling through have been struck by the vast land and sky of the prairies. This exhibition focuses on works that utilize large-scale formats to capture that seemingly limitless sensation as well as the intricacies that lie therein.
