Sound Vision: Contemporary Art from the Collection
From the Collection
The Nasher Museum presented an exhibition of recent acquisitions of contemporary art and other highlights from the collection. Sound Vision: Contemporary Art from the Collection includes paintings, works on paper, photography, video, installation and sculpture.
“We are thrilled to present an exhibition of some of the most exciting art of our time,” said Sarah Schroth, Mary D.B.T. and James H. Semans Director of the Nasher Museum. “Visitors will enjoy one dazzling work after another, and the conversations between them. A story emerges in this exhibition–of our dedication to our curator’s vision and our sound strategy for building a collection.”
Sound Vision featured 37 works by artists including Radcliffe Bailey, Sanford Biggers, William Cordova, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Noah Davis, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Charles Gaines, Deborah Grant, Barkley L. Hendricks, Taiyo Kimura, Christian Marclay, Kerry James Marshall, Vitaly Komar and Alex Melamid, Zanele Muholi, Odili Donald Odita, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Robert Pruitt, Dario Robleto, Gary Simmons, Xaviera Simmons, Burk Uzzle, Nari Ward, Andy Warhol, Carrie Mae Weems and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
The exhibition reflected a collecting strategy with a focus on artists who are living and working today, and may be emerging or unexpected. The work of these younger artists, often connected to the museum through exhibitions, was juxtaposed with established artists who have greatly influenced art of the 21st century.
Sound Vision: Contemporary Art from the Collection was supported by Nancy A. Nasher and David S. Haemisegger. Sound Vision was organized by Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum.
