Modern and Contemporary Art at Dartmouth
Highlights from the Hood Museum of Art
Temporary Exhibitions, Lathrop, Jaffe, Hall and Harrington Galleries
The third in a series of comprehensive exhibitions and catalogues showcasing the permanent collection, this exhibition surveys the breadth and depth of the permanent collection and highlights key works from the holdings, only a tiny fraction of which are on view in the museum's galleries at any one time. Modern and Contemporary Art at Dartmouth focuses on post-1945 painting, sculpture, works on paper, new media, and photography, and includes works by Mark Rothko, Ed Ruscha, Alice Neel, Romare Bearden, Alexander Calder, El Anatsui, Juan Munoz, Alison Saar, Amir Nour, Bob Haozous, Richard Serra, and Bill Viola, among others.
Generously funded by Hugh Freund '67, Margaret Fellner Hunt '78, Richard Reiss Jr. '66 and Bonnie F. Reiss P'83, Stephen A. Lister '63, Anne A. and Russell K. Mayerfeld P'08, the Homma Educational Access Fund, and the Leon C. 1927, Charles L. 1955, and Andrew J. 1984 Greenebaum Fund.
