Dec 31, 1969

Koki Tanaka, born in Tochigi, Japan, is an artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Known for questioning traditional notions of art through absurd performances--or in the case of his popular object-based acts that employ everyday objects in ways that playfully address the principles of physics and the element of wonder—Tanaka captivates viewers as he challenges expectations.

Dec 14, 2002 - Mar 09, 2003

In the "culmination of a great deal of hard work and generosity," the new Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will open the first exhibition in its new building in mid-December.

Mar 30, 2003 - Jun 08, 2003

Philip Guston Retrospective offers the most comprehensive survey of the artist's work to date. Almost a quarter century since the artist's last in-depth retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1979, this exhibition includes rarely seen works from the Guston estate.

Sep 21, 2003 - Jan 04, 2004

Joan Mitchell was a central figure of the second generation Abstract Expressionists. Although highly regarded by critics and fellow artists, Mitchell's achievement has never received full public recognition. The Paintings of Joan Mitchell, organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, covers the artist's entire career, from 1951 until her death, featuring nearly 50 works both intimate and grand in scale.

Nov 23, 2003 - Feb 22, 2004

Julie Bozzi's landscapes depict the spaces between the picturesque events others tend to seek out as they scan a panorama. What they lack in heroic impact, however, they make up for in their subconscious familiarity as American places. A resident of Texas since 1980, Bozzi often paints areas around Fort Worth and Dallas, along the Gulf Coast, and in the eastern Texas Piney Woods. Her approach involves sitting in her car near dusk in front of the chosen site and painting directly onto the canvas. The format of her works - narrow vistas - echoes the view through her car windshield.

May 16, 2004 - Aug 29, 2004

The work of Parisian artist Pierre Huyghe (HEW-ig) has won international acclaim and has been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions in recent years. In 2002 Huyghe was awarded the prestigious fourth biennial Hugo Boss Prize, given by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York, and in 2001 he was chosen to represent France in the 49th Venice Biennale. Pierre Huyghe: One Million + Kingdoms presents three video projects by Huyghe.

Sep 12, 2004 - Nov 28, 2004

One of the Museum's most significant holdings is its comprehensive collection of works by Robert Motherwell. Numbering fifty objects — paintings, collages, prints, and sketches — this body of work offers a special opportunity to examine and appreciate the creative range of this major modernist artist. 000Robert Motherwell is one of the figureheads of Abstract Expressionism, arguably the most important movement in the history of American art.

Dec 12, 2004 - Feb 06, 2005

One of the most popular works of art in the Modern's collection, Ruckus Rodeo by New York artist Red Grooms, will be installed in the Museum's new building for the first time, coinciding with the 2005 Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show. Ruckus Rodeo is an immense, walk-through work of art that covers 1,237 square feet of gallery space. It consists of painted two-dimensional surfaces and sculptural three-dimensional figures that re-create the Fort Worth rodeo.

Feb 27, 2005 - Jun 05, 2005

Dan Flavin: A Retrospective, the first comprehensive exhibition of Flavin's career, presents approximately 50 objects and installations, most of which use the medium of fluorescent light, along with drawings, sketches, and collage-constructions. Michael Auping, chief curator of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, notes, "Dan Flavin's light installations may be the closest thing we have to a contemporary sublime.

Jun 25, 2005 - Aug 28, 2005

Robert Bechtle: A Retrospective is the first full-scale survey of the work of this important San Francisco–based artist. Organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and SFMOMA Curator of Painting and Sculpture Janet Bishop in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition is the most comprehensive presentation of Bechtle's work to date. Since his work emerged in the context of New or Photo-realism in the late 1960s, Bechtle's genre scenes, streetscapes, and images of cars have become icons of middle-class American culture.

Sep 02, 2005 - Jan 15, 2006

The staff of the Modern is pleased to announce the exhibition of selected works from Pablo Picasso's Vollard Suite, part of the Museum's permanent collection. These works were last exhibited in 1985. Director Marla Price remarks, "The Vollard Suite is one of the great treasures of our collection. We are delighted to put it on view in our new building." Curator Andrea Karnes adds, "The Vollard Suite is our first highlighted exhibition of works on paper in the new building.

Sep 25, 2005 - Jan 08, 2006

The first American survey of Anselm Kiefer's work in almost two decades, this exhibition includes more than sixty major paintings, watercolors, books, and sculptures created from 1969 to 2005. Anselm Kiefer: Heaven and Earth is organized by Michael Auping, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth's chief curator. The exhibition reveals the layers of meaning threaded throughout all of Kiefer's work, specifically tracking his life-long interest in a visual exploration of a dialogue between heaven and earth.

Oct 29, 2005 - Jan 01, 2006

The inaugural Focus exhibition features the photography of Vera Lutter, who is inspired by the urban landscapes of big cities. The artist first began to capture the spirit and flow of Manhattan by experimenting with the principles of the camera obscura—turning her loft apartment into a large pinhole camera to create and print negative imagery. Lutter records the immediate inscription of light onto photo-sensitive materials, resisting further traditional processes that produce a positive image.

Jan 07, 2006 - Feb 26, 2006

British sculptor Cornelia Parker is fascinated with real-world processes that mimic cartoon “killings” and “deaths,” such as steamrolling, shooting things full of holes, falling from cliffs, and explosions.  Parker works with a variety of found objects, including silverware and marching band instruments, which she crushes, stretches, and suspends. She has also blown up structures, such as a garden shed, whose parts she then makes into a mobile that is hung from the gallery ceiling.

Jan 24, 2006 - Apr 30, 2006

Nicholas Nixon: The Brown Sisters has recently been acquired for the Modern's collection. This series of thirty-one black-and-white portraits of the artist's wife and her three sisters offers a compelling look at both portraiture and familial relationships.

Feb 12, 2006 - May 28, 2006

Sean Scully is one of the most admired painters working today. He works and exhibits throughout the world, with active studios in the United States, Spain, and Germany. Scully's Wall of Light series is his most important series to date.

Mar 05, 2006 - Apr 23, 2006

The three bodies of work represented in FOCUS: Adam Fuss include images of water droplets, butterfly chrysalises, and children, and each of these series was produced with a different photographic technique. The water droplet images are photograms, a cameraless process invented at photography’s inception in which light and chemicals produce a unique image on photo-sensitive materials. The pictures of children are gelatin silver prints, a standard twentieth-century darkroom method; and the chrysalises are pigment prints, a present-day process.

Apr 09, 2006 - Jun 25, 2006

For more than thirty years, Chuck Close has explored the art of printmaking in his continuing investigation into the principles of perception. This exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of Close's involvement and accomplishment with the varied forms and processes of printmaking. Featuring approximately one hundred works dated from 1972 to 2002, Chuck Close Prints illustrates the artist's range of invention in etching, aquatint, lithography, handmade paper, direct gravure, silkscreen, traditional Japanese woodcut, and reduction linocut.

May 07, 2006 - Jun 25, 2006

Like many contemporary Japanese painters, Hiroshi Sugito (born in 1970) was trained in the traditional Japanese painting style known as Nihonga (Nihon means “Japan” and ga means “painting”).  The Nihonga technique utilizes ground pigments made of natural materials such as minerals, shells, and coral applied to handmade paper.  Sugito achieves a visual similarity to this technique in his paintings by using layers of acrylic paint.  In his works he also refers to the formal spatial arrangements of Nihonga, and he further refers to Japanese traditio

Sep 17, 2006 - Jan 12, 2007

Hiroshi Sugimoto: End of Time is the first major retrospective of one of Japan's most important contemporary artists, Hiroshi Sugimoto. This exhibition represents the first chance to survey Sugimoto's work in significant volume, including his series DioramasSeascapesTheatresPortraitsArchitectureSea of Buddha, and Conceptual Forms. In addition, there will be a chance to see Colors of Shadow, a new series of color photographs of the artist's studio, which he designed himself.

Oct 22, 2006 - Nov 26, 2006

The British painter Nigel Cooke combines realism with abstraction in canvases that seem to represent scenes of urban decay. In Cooke’s atmospheric works—some of which measure more than twelve feet in length—foregrounds populated by detailed depictions of debris are juxtaposed with airy, nearly abstract backgrounds that evoke crumbling concrete walls tinged with graffiti. The Modern’s FOCUS exhibition features seven works by Cooke, including one newly completed canvas making its debut.

Dec 03, 2006 - Jan 28, 2007

The Japanese artist Chinatsu Ban creates imaginative narratives using a recurring cast of figures, primarily little girls and elephants, and objects, such as apples and ice cream, in her drawings and large-scale acrylic paintings, which initially suggest the whimsy of children’s book illustrations. Since the artist’s childhood, the elephant, which is now her central motif, has been a source of comfort.

Feb 04, 2007 - Apr 08, 2007

FOCUS: Ralf Ziervogel marks the young German artist’s first solo museum exhibition. Since 2003, Ziervogel has developed a stream-of-consciousness method for creating large-scale, lush panoramic drawings that explore the effects of consumer gratification. In his imagined worlds, societal chaos is constructed on themes of obsessive sex and violence.

Feb 25, 2007 - May 27, 2007

Pretty Baby, organized by Curator Andrea Karnes and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, explores various notions of childhood identity in contemporary art. International in scope, the exhibition features approximately sixty works by thirteen artists in various media, including painting, photography, sound, installation, and video.

Apr 15, 2007 - Jun 10, 2007

Barnaby Furnas (American, born 1973) explores historical and biblical themes in his large-scale canvases, which are often described as colorful and expressionistic. The parting of the Red Sea, the Crucifixion, the hanging of the American abolitionist John Brown, and the American Civil War, for example, are depicted by Furnas in dramatic scenes that combine figuration with abstraction. To create his works, the artist places his canvases on the floor and allows pigment to pool and run, forming abstract shapes.

Jun 24, 2007 - Oct 21, 2007

Ron Mueck, a virtuoso of hyperrealistic sculpture, has earned international recognition, with previous major exhibitions in London, Venice, Washington, and Berlin. Over the past decade, the Australian-born, London-based artist has created a personal, distinctive body of works whose startling impact have given a fresh impulse to contemporary sculpture.

Sep 30, 2007 - Jan 06, 2008

Declaring Space includes works by four artists whose images had a dramatic effect on the complex development of space and color in abstract painting as it evolved in the years following World War II. The works of these artists do not represent a movement as much as a dramatic evolution of what has come to be thought of as "the field," an often misunderstood term in the vocabulary of postwar abstract art.

Jan 13, 2008 - Feb 24, 2008

FOCUS: Joshua Mosley features the artist’s high-definition animation short and sculpture installation titled A Vue, 2004. “A vue” is a French rock-climbing term meaning a clean ascent with no knowledge of the route. Like much of his work, A Vue addresses Mosley’s interest in the complex nature of balancing the personal with societal responsibility.

Feb 24, 2008 - May 18, 2008

Martin Puryear is a retrospective that features approximately forty-seven sculptures, following the development of Puryear's thirty-year career from his first solo museum show in 1977 to the present day.

Mar 02, 2008 - Apr 13, 2008

Engaging the masculine, machine aesthetic of Minimalism and the equally macho, but gritty, iconography of heavy metal music, Banks Violette creates an unlikely pact between high and low forms of visual communication to explore the ways fiction can turn into belief, or fantasy can be rendered real. Violette’s work is often characterized as an exploration of present-day themes of disaster, driven by stories of teen angst or devotion to—even obsession with—a particular band.

Apr 20, 2008 - May 25, 2008

Kehinde Wiley creates larger-than-life-size portraits that mix historical Western European painting styles such as French Romanticism, Rococo, and Baroque with images from contemporary urban streets.  The resulting monumental works are painted in Wiley’s characteristic, flamboyant style and presented in ornate gold frames. While the artist evokes important and highly recognizable paintings from the past, he replaces those works’ elite white sitters with African-American men.

Jul 03, 2008 - Oct 19, 2008

My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love, the first full-scale American museum survey of the work of artist Kara Walker, features works ranging from her signature black cut-paper silhouettes to film animations to more than 100 works on paper.

Sep 14, 2008 - Jan 04, 2009

The Swiss/American artist duo Teresa Hubbard (born 1965 in Dublin, Ireland) and Alexander Birchler (born 1962 in Baden, Switzerland) live and work in Austin, Texas. In a career of more than fifteen years, they have become known for their picturesque, color-saturated photographic series and their deliberately slow-paced video installations, which feature slow pan shots, endless loops, and puzzling plot lines. Starting with their early staged photographs, No Room to Answer presents key works from 1991 to 2008.

Dec 14, 2008 - Feb 08, 2009

Ranjani Shettar creates large-scale, abstract sculpture by combining manmade and natural materials such as wood, beeswax, cloth, thread, rubber, PVC pipe, wire, steel, and beads. Her works, which appear to be as impulsive and random as they are patterned and logical, are frequently arranged as sculptural installations that interact with and articulate the space around them.

Feb 15, 2009 - Mar 29, 2009

As a young painter in the mid-1980s, Texas-based artist Jeff Elrod focused on creating ironic works that addressed American postwar abstraction. “I was conflicted,” the artist explains, “I was trying to find a clever way to approach painting because I felt like it wasn’t acceptable to earnestly make abstract work, even though I was earnest about it. I was searching for a relevant form of present-day American abstraction—for a while I collaborated with another artist, and then I made paintings that were components of larger installations.

Apr 05, 2009 - May 17, 2009

Painter and native Texan Rosson Crow’s upcoming FOCUS exhibition features her large-scale, vivid depictions of nostalgia-laden interiors that blend aspects of history with theatricality. Interior spaces are the foundation upon which Crow constructs her hotly colored, dripping tableaus. Often including Modernist architectural triumphs, and/or places with mythic backstories, Crow’s subjects range from Los Angeles’s Koenig House to Fort Worth’s White Elephant Saloon.

Jul 12, 2009 - Sep 27, 2009

William Kentridge: Five Themes, a comprehensive survey of the contemporary South African artist's work, features more than 75 works in a range of media—including animated films, drawings, prints, theater models, sculptures, and books. The exhibition is co-organized by SFMOMA and the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, and curated by Mark Rosenthal, adjunct curator of contemporary art at the Norton Museum of Art, in close collaboration with the artist.

Oct 18, 2009 - Jan 03, 2010

Susan Rothenberg and Michael Auping, the Chief Curator at the Modern, have identified a select group of paintings—from the early horse paintings of the mid-1970s, to her most recent body of work, which explores a number of central motifs that have occurred throughout her 35-year career.

Dec 13, 2009 - Feb 14, 2010

The work of Norwegian-born Gardar Eide Einarsson often explores the complex relationship between individuals and institutions, and the painful limits of transgressing society-imposed boundaries.

The artist also has an interest in commonly used graphics and signs and how we collectively read and relate to them. Logo, 2008, for example, is an eerie black-and-white representation of the HSBC bank’s logo, conveying a dark and apt take on the banking industry.

Feb 14, 2010 - May 16, 2010

Andy Warhol: The Last Decade features nearly 50 works by Warhol and examines how he simultaneously worked with the screened image and pursued a reinvention of painting in his late work. Created amidst the bustle of Warhol's Pop celebrity, the works included illustrate the artist’s vitality, energy, and renewed spirit of experimentation. During those final years, Warhol produced more works, in a greater number of series, than at any other time.

Feb 21, 2010 - Apr 04, 2010

Gabriel Acevedo Velarde is a multicultural, multimedia artist who creates narratives in which autobiography, history and fiction are intertwined. The artist was born in Lima, Peru; received his BFA in Puebla, Mexico; attended film school in Mexico City; and currently lives in Berlin, Germany.  Having these different cultural viewpoints has informed his perspective on how individuality is created in a global society. His experimental videos and installations explore the notion of identity and its evolution through the use of social parables.

Apr 11, 2010 - Jun 07, 2010

American-born artist Ben Jones' work investigates new methods of pictorial storytelling in the digital age. An interdisciplinary artist working in video, sculpture, painting, light painting and drawing, his artworks and installations evoke environments and themes both familiar and bizarre.

Sep 25, 2010 - Jan 02, 2011

Born in 1943 at Fort Worth's Harris Hospital, Vernon Fisher is one of Texas's most internationally recognized artists. He has lived and worked in Fort Worth since 1977. Fisher received a BA in English literature from Hardin-Simmons University in 1967 and an MFA from the University of Illinois in 1969. Influenced by artists such as Edward Ruscha and John Baldessari, Fisher constructs visual narratives, combining images and language in a wide range of media.

Dec 05, 2010 - Feb 06, 2011

Erik Parker has described his work as “fragmented samples of our culture.” A Texas native, Parker is known for his figurative paintings of disembodied, twisted heads that ooze vivid color and recede into themselves as much as they explode outwardly into the space around them. 

Jan 23, 2011 - Apr 17, 2011

Since Ruscha's first road trip from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles in 1956, the artist has continued to engage the images he has encountered along the roads of the western United States. This multimedia presentation features some of his most iconic paintings, including two large-scale works from the 1960s, Standard Station, Amarillo, Texas (1963) and Standard Station with Ten-Cent Western Being Torn in Half (1964). The exhibition marks the first time these two paintings will be reunited in over three decades.

Feb 20, 2011 - Apr 05, 2011

Robert Lazzarini is best known for his sculptures of common objects in which detailed craftsmanship is combined with precise illusionistic distortion. Scaled to the size of the original object and using the same materials, Lazzarini creates versions of guns, knives, brass knuckles, chairs, telephones, telephone booths, and skulls, among other things. Factuality is a theme that runs throughout his imagery, as is visual perception and how that perception is constructed in both the mind of the viewer and in the physical world.

Apr 17, 2011 - Jun 19, 2011

Sculptor Teresita Fernández creates work in response to nature. Reminiscent of clouds, rainstorms, waterfalls, and stars in the night sky, Fernández’s mercurial forms shimmer, float, and undulate before our eyes. The artist is interested in generating an intimate experience with each of her installations. As she has put it, “What I’m after is a lingering, ephemeral engagement. Slow, quiet, and with enough depth kinesthetically to be recalled by the viewer after the work is no longer in front of them.”

For much of a century—from the late 1940s until his recent death in July 2011—Freud made the living human presence his subject.

New York-based artist Gary Simmons is known for his “erasure” technique, which he began using in the early 1990s. Initially creating semi-erased works with chalk on blackboards, the artist has evolved to works on paper, paint on canvas, and murals that mimic smudged chalk. The resulting blurred and ghostly images often refer to intersections of pop culture, race, and class.

The city provides the context for the visually packed work of San Francisco native Barry McGee. Since the mid-1980s, when McGee was a teenager, he has lived in the city’s oldest neighborhood, the Mission District. At that time, the Mission held a colorful, somewhat seedy, antiestablishment atmosphere with a thriving culture of youth, alternative musicians, artists, and thinkers. The vibe of the Mission influenced the artist early on, and he began to infiltrate the area’s flourishing graffiti boom with images that he created to reflect his surroundings.
