Chitra Ganesh: Sultana’s Dream

February 28–June 14, 2020

The Condition of Womanhood

Chitra Ganesh’s Sultana’s Dream is an exhibition of Ganesh’s 2018 portfolio of 27 linocuts. The project Sultana’s Dream was inspired by Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain’s early 20th-century story of the same title; the prints—all black linocuts on tan paper—both illustrate elements of the text and use its imagery and themes to explore urgent topics of the political present.

“The 613” – Archie Rand

June 14–September 20, 2020

“The 613” explores both traditions of biblical interpretation and of artistic expression. Interrogation is a common strategy among the individual panels, as the images may underscore, contradict, and very often obscure the teachings of the referenced commandments. Quoting masterworks by artists such as Paul Cézanne and Edouard Manet and enlisting imagery from Jewish comic artists, Rand interweaves visual culture and Scripture which, ironically, has been interpreted historically to forbid the creation of idols, images, and even art more broadly.

Andy Warhol: A Life in Pop

October 25, 2020–January 31, 2021

Andy Warhol (1928–1987) is among the most recognizable and influential artists of all time. For all of his much discussed dispassion and irony, he had an uncanny sense for the power and influence of American and popular culture, both in its superficial and more profound forms. Warhol’s focus extended well beyond his famous obsessions with commercialism, celebrity, and glamour. Warhol: A Life in Pop features a broad range of the artist’s screen-printed imagery from 1964 to 1985.

This Exhibition is made possible through the Bank of America Art in our Communities program.
