The Neuberger Museum of Art Opens for the Spring Semester at Purchase College
The Neuberger Museum of Art will reopen for the Spring Semester on the Purchase College Campus on Wednesday, February 2.
Now on view is Then and Now: Modern and Contemporary Selections from the Permanent Collection. Then and Now is an ongoing exhibition that includes a rotation of works by some of the museum’s most beloved artists installed with contemporary art from the collection.
Impressions: The Inventions of Printmaking is also on view until February 27, 2022, featuring works on paper and fabric from the Neuberger Museum of Art’s permanent collection. Impressions: The Inventions of Printmaking navigates a rich history of printmaking from relief to intaglio to planographic processes.
Lesley Dill: Rush is on view until February 14. Lesley Dill’s Rush (2006-07) is a visually dazzling, ambitious site responsive work that covers a 20’ x 60’ wall in the Neuberger Museum’s Theater Gallery. This immersive installation is an enormous collage of hundreds of interconnected animal and human figures culled from world spiritual traditions and representing love, death, transcendence, and other themes.
In addition, on view until February 20, David Smith: Billiard Players exhibit includes a selection of works executed from 1935 through 1945, a crucial period in the artist’s artistic evolution. Smith examined the figure of the billiard player in many variations as a way to advance open sculptural forms, synthesize sociopolitical subject matter into his own personal iconography, and explore the fluidity between representation and abstraction in depicting volume, motion and time.
Following the Clues: The Roy R. Neuberger Collection Provenance Project is on view until April 24, 2022. Stewarding a collection requires not only the physical care of objects but also a lot of research. That detective work, using a wide range of tools, is critical for ensuring that the history of the ownership of an object—its provenance—is known prior to a museum acquiring that work by gift, bequest, or purchase.
The Museum at 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12-5pm. Masking and proof of vaccination or a negative test result is required. For more information call 914-251-6100.
