Artists frequently think beyond the unique object, to work with a group of closely related images that together express an artistic vision in its entirety. This ongoing installation, drawn from the Museum’s extensive holding of works on paper, presents examples of this creative process. Works by Dotty Attie, Mark Bradford, Carroll Dunham, Dan Flavin, Jasper Johns, Elizabeth Murray, Lorna Simpson, Joyce Trieman, and Terry Winters, among other artists, will be shown in rotation.

In Parts is organized by David Kiehl, Nancy and Fred Poses Curator.
