Beyond Brancusi: The Space of Sculpture - April 26, 2013 - January 06, 2014
The Norton Simon Museum presents Beyond Brancusi: The Space of Sculpture, an exhibition that examines how the great sculptors of the 20th century were influenced by Constantin Brancusi and his groundbreaking use of space and material. Featuring 19 works from the Museum’s renowned collection of post-war art, by sculptors as diverse as Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Barbara Hepworth, Donald Judd, Carl Andre, John McCracken and Robert Irwin, the exhibition demonstrates how sculpture moved from being a self-contained, three-dimensional object to one that engages with its surrounding space. In a variety of ways and in a variety of materials, including marble, wood, stainless steel, felt or Plexiglas, the sculptures on view illustrate some of the most innovative moments in art making in the latter half of the 20th century. The exhibition is on view from April 26, 2013 through January 6, 2014, in the Museum’s temporary exhibition gallery.
Breaking Ground: 20th-Century Latin American Art at the Norton Simon Museum - September 13, 2013 - November 04, 2013
In celebration of Latino Heritage month, the Norton Simon Museum presents an exhibition of works from 20th-century Latin American artists. Spanning a 50-year period from 1931 to 1985, the featured artworks demonstrate how artists broke new ground, leaving behind or drastically altering artistic conventions to explore diverse forms of modernism. While Latin American art is often presumed to be figurative and political, this exhibition makes clear that artists were engaged with a variety of subjects and themes and they conceived of the “figure” in radically different ways. With line, shape, form, color, and/or texture, they undertook innovative approaches to figure-ground relations, using positive and negative space for various purposes. This intimate exhibition, which consists of selections from the Norton Simon Museum collection, features work by some of the most revered names in Latin American art and artists who are less-widely known: Mexican painters, lithographers and photographers Diego Rivera, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Rufino Tamayo, Jose Luis Cuevas, Angel Bracho, and South Americans Roberto Matta (Chile), Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt, Venezuela) and Antonio Frasconi (Uruguay).
