The college will partner with the Minnesota Museum of American Art (MMAA) to present the 2010 exhibition Generation Abstraction: Selections from the Minnesota Museum of American Art. This exhibition, running March 12 -28, investigates the mid-century American impulse to make art out of pure color, line, gesture, material, and surface.
Starting with Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s through Minimalist forms in the 1970s, the exhibition will showcase a variety of responses to modernist abstraction with important paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Mining the rich collection of the MMAA in Saint Paul, the exhibition will probe the question of what makes the abstract image continue to speak to our imaginations, our experiences, and our emotions.
