The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a new installation of the permanent collection. This re-arrangement consists of treasured favorites, rarely seen works from the vault, and new acquisitions.
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic, an overview highlighting the range of the artist's prolific 14-year career and comprising approximately 60 works. The exhibition begins with early examples of paintings inspired by Wiley’s observations of street life in Harlem; these images of African-American men mark the onset of his focused exploration of the male figure.
For this year’s Day With(out) Art 2015, Visual AIDS is working with nine influential artists, activists and curators—Bill Arning, Ian Alteveer, Chris Vargas, Rae Lewis-Thornton, Mark S. King, Allen Frame, Maria Mejia, Jack Mackenroth, and Kimberly Drew—to present RADIANT PRESENCE.
