The Aesthetic Movement in America: Artists of the Photo-Secession

Through March 5

Pictorialism was the first truly international photography movement, and its practitioners, among them Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen and Gertrude Käsebier, sought to position photography as a legitimate aesthetic art form. They favored soft-focus images that drew upon the conventions of important artists and movements of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Their poetic compositions drawn from contemporary life, combined with the use of expensive and labor-intensive printing materials such as platinum and gum bichromate, established these photographs as complex and nuanced works of high artistic quality. The exhibition features works by Stieglitz, Steichen, Käsebier, Clarence White & Paul Strand.

Europe on Paper: The Ernst Pulgram and Frances McSparran Collection

Through Jan. 29

Visually stunning, thought-provoking, and wide-ranging, Europe on Paper: The Ernst Pulgram and Frances McSparran Collection features forty-seven works on paper—drawings, prints, and watercolors from the eighteenth to the twentieth century—that focus on the expressive capacities of line and its ability to articulate the seen and unseen. Showcased are some important twentieth-century Austrian and German expressionist artists, including Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Ernst Kirchner, and Oskar Kokoschka, who paved the way for future generations of the avant-garde, and the Italian Giovanni Battista Piranesi, one of the most inventive draftsmen and printmakers of the eighteenth century.

Throughout history, jade has had profound cultural implications in different regions of the world. In ancient Mesoamerican cultures, jade was highly prized and often connected to rulers and spirituality. A wide variety of items, including tools, figurines, and jewelry reflected the strong cosmological and symbolic associations the culture had with this luminous, hard stone. Jade has also been an important artistic material in China for over 6,000 years. During this time, it evolved from serving ritual functions to personal usage. $0 – $7
