This exhibition gathers work by artists who address concepts of space and place. Drawn entirely from the Modern’s permanent collection, the exhibition includes paintings, photographs, drawings, and videos by artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, and Mexico. The categories of space and place are broadly conceived, encompassing nature, the city, environment, geography, and atmosphere, as well as landscapes of the imagination.

Los Angeles–based artist Analia Saban (b. 1980, Buenos Aires) takes traditional artistic media, such as paint, marble, and canvas, and pushes their limits in inventive ways that merge scientific experimentation with artmaking. In her Draped Marble works, Saban bends slabs of marble to the brink of destruction. Arced over walnut sawhorses, the marble appears fragile and pliable.

Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare's Richard II. This visceral new production about the limits of power is directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins.

Ricahrd II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish, and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king's divine right to rule. 

Presented by Amphibian Productions in partnership with the Modern

Set during the tumultuous times of the early 1920s, a Kansas woman (Elizabeth McGovern, Downton Abbey) is forever changed when she chaperones a beautiful and talented 15-year-old dancer, Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson, Split), to New York for the summer. One of them is eager to fulfill her destiny of dance and movie stardom; the other is on a mission to unearth the mysteries of her past. The Chaperone reunites the writer, director, and star of Downton Abbey: Michael Engler, Julian Fellowes, and Elizabeth McGovern (Lady Grantham in the hit series).
