Museum Exhibitions

Larry Bell

In October 2014, the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, will present an exhibition of Larry Bell’s large-scale glass installations. These environmental works absorb, transmit, and reflect light, calling into question the nature of the physical and visual spaces they inhabit.

John Mason

John Mason will be included in the Whitney Biennial, curated by Stuart Comer, Anthony Elms, and Michelle Grabner, on view March 7 – May 25, 2014. The 2014 Biennial will present an interdisciplinary group 103 artists, making it "one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years." Mason has a fifty year record of shows at the Whitney, with earlier exhibitions including Fifty California Artists, 1962; the 1964 Annual Exhibition: Contemporary American Sculpture; the 1973 Biennial Exhibition: Contemporary American Art; 200 Years of American Sculpture, 1976; and Ceramic Sculpture, Six Artists, 1981.

Adrian Saxe

Artwork by Adrian Saxe will be featured in the 70th Scripps Ceramic Annual, opening on January 25th at the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery. The Ceramics Annual is the longest-running exhibition of contemporary ceramics in the United States, and this year it presents works by artist curators who have previously participated. The show will be on display from January 25 – April 6, 2014.

Saxe also has work on display at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, in the exhibition Beyond Craft: Decorative Arts from the Leatrice S. and Melvin B. Eagle Collection. The show will be on view through May 26, 2014.
