Alberto Giacometti: Toward the Ultimate Figure
Through June 12, 2022
The Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Hall

Co-organized by the Fondation Giacometti in Paris and the Cleveland Museum of Art, Alberto Giacometti: Toward the Ultimate Figure illuminates Alberto Giacometti’s (1901–1966) major achievements of the postwar years (1945–66). During this time, the artist developed his signature style featuring thin, elongated figures animated by vigorously modeled surfaces. Encompassing a range of media—sculpture, painting and drawing—the show includes 60 works, draws on the deep resources of the artist’s personal collection and examines his singular concern for the human form. The touring exhibition makes its national debut in Cleveland. It will also be presented at the Seattle Art Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City.

Derrick Adams: LOOKS
Through May 29, 2022
Mark Schwartz and Bettina Katz Photography Gallery | Gallery 230
FREE

Hair and wigs carry cultural and political weight in Black culture, rendering them powerful tools for self-representation. Derrick Adams: LOOKS features nine monumental paintings of wigs on mannequin heads from the artist’s recent Style Variations series. Through his paintings, Adams aims to make the practice he refers to as “costuming,” or the desire to be unique and stand out, normal to the broader public.

Derrick Adams: LOOKS was jointly organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland Clinic, marking the centennial of Cleveland Clinic.

The featured artists range from those avidly experimenting with printmaking processes to others who are exploring the practice for the first time.

Gold and silver reliquaries, jeweled crosses, liturgical garments and illuminated manuscripts are among the rare treasures kept in the Cathedral of Saint Paul in Münster, in northwestern Germany. Many of Münster’s reliquaries, created between the 1000s and 1500s, were permanently displayed on the altar, while others were brought out only during liturgical celebrations. Medieval Treasures includes eight of these reliquaries.

Cycles of Life: The Four Seasons Tapestries
Through February 19, 2023
Arlene M. and Arthur S. Holden Textile Gallery | Gallery 234
FREE

 

 

 

Cycles of Life: The Four Seasons Tapestries offers visitors an in-depth look at a rare, complete set of tapestries in the museum’s collection that has not been displayed since 1953 because of the tapestries’ fragile condition. Each tapestry depicts seasonal activities: fishing and gardening (Spring), grain harvesting (Summer), wine making (Autumn) and ice skating (Winter). When viewed together, the tapestries represent a full cycle of life.

Art historical research for this exhibition was a collaboration with Case Western Reserve University graduate students in the museum’s joint art history graduate program.

Generous support is provided by the Thompson Family Foundation.

The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion
Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery
May 8 to September 11, 2022.

The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion features vibrant portraits and conceptual images that fuse art and fashion photography. The exhibition opens conversations around the representation of the Black body and Black lives as subject matter and challenges the idea that Blackness is homogenous. In Cleveland, the exhibition has a unique addition to the photographs on the walls: mannequins dressed in fashionable looks created by three of the stylists represented in the show. Arielle Bobb-Willis and Daniel Obasi, who work both as stylists and photographers, and stylist Jermaine Daley each produce a special look that highlights the important role played by stylists in creating the narratives that audiences consume from fashion and photography.

Get a first look at the exhibition during the Member and Public Opening Party on Friday, May 6, from 7 to 10 p.m. Guests will enjoy free admission to the exhibition, a DJ and a cash bar. Creative fashion ensembles are encouraged. The party is free for members and $10 for the public. Visit cma.org for updates and to reserve tickets. This event is for guests 21 and over.

Collection Exhibitions

Opening this month
Japan’s Floating World (日本の浮世)
April 8 to October 2, 2022
Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Japanese Art Galleries | Galleries 235A–B
FREE

A significant share of paintings, prints and decorative arts made in Japan from the mid-1700s to mid-1800s captured artists’ responses to urban sex and entertainment districts unofficially known as the ukiyo (浮世), or “floating world.” Ukiyo-e (浮世絵), or “pictures of the floating world,” inspired by these exceptional spaces and their occupants, eschewed the grim realities of sex work, instead marketing beauty, celebrity, pleasure and fashion, often in combination with allusions to famous literature or historical episodes. The term “ukiyo” was repurposed in the late 1600s from its much older use in Buddhism, where it described human frailty in the face of constant change. The new floating world, designed as an escape from the constraints of daily life for male government servants, thrived on ephemeral experiences and suggested a kaleidoscope of enjoyable possibilities. In addition to paintings, prints of courtesans and musicians vie with those of Kabuki actors and a sumo wrestler for attention in the spring installation (April 8–July 10), while prints of boating parties on the Sumida River feature in the summer installation (July 12–October 2). The exhibition also presents a feminist work by Oda Mayumi (b. 1941), whose work is rooted in the ukiyo-e tradition.

 

Opening this month
Creating Urgency: Modern and Contemporary Korean Art
April 22 to October 23, 2022
Korea Foundation Gallery | Gallery 236

Creating Urgency: Modern and Contemporary Korean Art sparks a stimulating discussion about contemporary Korean artists and their expressive language of defining diasporic artistic identities. Korean-born French painter Ungno Lee (1904–1989) reimagined traditional Korean ink painting and its conventional methods through his exploration of Art Informel (French Abstract Expressionist approaches of the 1940s and ’50s). The Berlin-based Korean artist Haegue Yang (b. 1971), on the other hand, invites the audience to critically explore issues of identity, migration and displacement. The selected works on display share each Korean artist’s experiences and challenges in the global art scene.

 

Closing this month
Popular Art from Early Modern Korea
Through April 24, 2022
Korea Foundation Gallery | Gallery 236

In the 1960s, practitioners of Pop Art looked toward everyday commodities and commercial images for inspiration. Such an artistic spirit that challenged the rigid concept between high- and lowbrow arts in fact had long existed in Korean art, flourishing in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

 

Migrations of Memory––The Poetry and Power of Music (平沙落雁 — 音樂的詩意與力量)
Through May 1, 2022
Clara T. Rankin Galleries of Chinese Art | Gallery 240A
An installation by Peng Wei in collaboration with the Cleveland Museum of Art

Surrounded by classical Chinese paintings and instruments from the museum’s collection, the central installation Migrations of Memory—Wild Geese Descend on Level Sands (平沙落雁) by contemporary Chinese artist Peng Wei addresses the vital role of music and the arts during the COVID-19 pandemic. Made of music stands, letters by Western composers and paintings, Peng Wei’s installation is dedicated to the Cleveland Orchestra and musicians worldwide.

This exhibition is accompanied by a free, fully illustrated booklet.

This exhibition is supported by TKG Foundation for Arts and Culture.

 

Art of the Islamic World
Through May 31, 2022
Gallery 116

Artwork from the Islamic world is as diverse and vibrant as the peoples who produced it. The objects presented in this gallery were created during the 8th through 19th centuries, a period of great cultural and geographic expansion. As a result, these works represent a vast area including Spain, North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. While these pieces originate within the Islamic world, they reflect the unique artistic and cultural traditions of disparate regions.

 
Martial Art of India
Through August 21, 2022
Indian Painting Gallery | Gallery 242B

Scenes of battles and portraits of soldiers in Indian painting include both historical and mythical, real and idealized images—and often in combination. This selection of paintings from the museum’s permanent collection reveals a range of depictions from historical documents to illustrations of epic tales.

 
Native North America
Through December 4, 2022
Sarah P. and William R. Robertson Gallery | Gallery 231

Works on display in the Native North American gallery include a group of objects from the Great Plains—a child’s beaded cradle; a woman’s hair-pipe necklace, one of the most memorable of Plains ornaments; and several beaded or painted bags that served varied purposes. A basket rotation features creations that Timbisha Shoshone (Panamint) weavers of California’s Death Valley made for the early 20th-century collector’s market. Finally, for the first time in at least 20 years, two works by contemporary Inuit artists of the Canadian Arctic make an appearance. One is a 1972 stone-cut print by Alec (Peter) Aliknak Banksland, a founding member of the Holman Eskimo Arts Cooperative, now the Ulukhaktok Arts Centre in Ulukhaktok, Canada.

 
Ancient Andean Textiles
Through December 4, 2022
Jon A. Lindseth and Virginia M. Lindseth, PhD, Galleries of the Ancient Americas | Gallery 232

The textiles represent several different civilizations that flourished in the ancient Andes, today Peru and parts of adjacent countries. Though unrelated by cultural affiliation, they are unified by being special in some way, whether through rarity, complexity of execution or luxuriousness of materials.

 
Arts of Africa: Gallery Rotation
Through December 18, 2022
Galleries 108A–C

Seventeen rarely seen or newly acquired works are installed in the African arts galleries. These 19th- to 21st-century works from northern, central and western Africa support continuing efforts to broaden the scope of African arts on view at the CMA.
