Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents Spaces and Places: Works from the Collection

Feb. 23-May 12

Tue-Sun 10 am-5 pm

This permanent collection exhibition is organized by the Modern’s curatorial staff: Andrea Karnes, Senior Curator; Alison Hearst, Associate Curator; and Lee Hallman, Associate Curator-Collection Research.


Spaces and Places: Works from the Collection 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. The sites presented range from natural to man-made, cosmic to microcosmic, real to fictional, and sublime to commonplace, while artistic approaches vary from representation to abstraction, documentary to conceptual. The selection reflects the diverse ways that artists engage space and place to explore questions of identity, memory, gender, history, power, technology, nostalgia, anxiety, or desire.
