Breaking the Frame: Women Artists from the Harn Collections

September 24, 2020 - May 2, 2021
Julia C. and Budd H. Bishop Gallery

Breaking the Frame marks the Harn’s 30th anniversary through an installation that celebrates the growth of its collection of work by important women artists, aligning itself with the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. The exhibition reflects the museum’s robust effort since 2012 to enhance its representation of women artists’ works and includes a number of recent acquisitions. Forty-four international works of painting, mixed media, photography, prints, drawings, ceramics, sculpture and fiber arts explore gender roles, sexuality, equity, diversity, adversity and inclusion.

Terry Evans: Stories of the American Prairies

November 24, 2020 - July 4, 2021
The Melvin and Lorna Rubin Gallery

This exhibition features thirty-three photographs by acclaimed Chicago-based photographer, Terry Evans. It is a love letter to America’s Heartland that documents the ecological transformations of the mid-west from Texas to Canada. Evans’s micro-to-macro perspective examines the land through close-up and zoomed-out perspectives, taken on the ground and from the air (the latter not by drone). Her art comes out of a knowledge of the history of landscape photography, art history, the history of her region and America’s industrial development. Her vision is informed and distinctly humanist, at once grassroots and universal.
