    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.

    Derrick Adams: LOOKS
    December 5, 2021, to May 29, 2022
    Mark Schwartz and Bettina Katz Photography Gallery | Gallery 230

    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.

    This exhibition is supported in part by Cleveland Clinic.

  • Art of the Islamic World
    Through May 31, 2022

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.


  • Medieval Treasures from Münster Cathedral
    Through August 14, 2022
    Gallery 115

    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.

  • Opening this month
    Native North America
    December 4, 2021, to December 4, 2022
    Sarah P. and William R. Robertson Gallery | Gallery 231

    Works from the permanent collection newly 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; most dramatic are three fine, large presentation bowls modeled on Native food service bowls. 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 stonecut print by Alec (Peter) Aliknak Banksland, a founding member of the Holman Eskimo Arts Cooperative, now the Ulukhaktok Arts Centre in Ulukhaktok, Canada.


  • Opening this month
    Ancient Andean Textiles
    December 4, 2021, to 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. The centerpiece of the display is a unique cloth that experts regard as one of the greatest paintings to survive from South American antiquity. One of the museum’s masterpieces, it was created by an artist of the Nasca culture (100 BC–AD 650) and depicts a procession of figures who may represent humans dressed in the guises of supernatural beings thought to control nature’s fertility. Other textiles in the rotation include a panel covered in the radiant feathers of the blue-and-yellow macaw, made by artists of the Wari Empire (600–1000), and several fragments that are rare survivors of catastrophic rains that destroyed much of the Moche culture’s (AD 200–850) textile legacy.


  • Opening this month
    Arts of Africa: Gallery Rotation
    December 10, 2021, to December 18, 2022
    Galleries 108A–C

    Seventeen rarely seen or newly acquired works will be 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.

    Marking the first inclusion of a northern African artist in the CMA’s African arts gallery, digitally carved alabaster tablets by contemporary Algerian artist Rachid Koraïchi make their debut. Carved by acclaimed Yorùbá sculptor Duga of Mẹkọ (c. 1880–1960), twinned Gẹ̀lẹ̀dẹ́ society masks with innovative moving parts go on view, while a Yorùbá-style vessel of a goose is displayed with new insights into its painted plumage.

    Several works acquired during the CMA’s first 25 years show the long institutional history of African arts. These include a central African elite’s luxurious wooden sandals and a Zimbabwean ceremonial axe with ties to both the historical Great Zimbabwe and modern independence movements. Among these early acquisitions are pieces made by the royal Asante goldsmiths’ guild; these visitor favorites are reinstalled with new texts regarding their spiritual meaning and artists’ techniques.


Special On-site Programs and Events

  • The Keithley Symposium: “Monumental Conversations: City Stories”
    Friday, December 3, 2021, 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
    Gartner Auditorium
    FREE; reserve tickets

    The Keithley Symposium is a biennial event co-hosted by the Cleveland Museum of Art and Case Western Reserve University Joint Program in Art History that brings together artists, scholars, thought leaders and community members to explore the role of visual arts in contemporary society. For this symposium, the institutions are collaborating with Monument Lab, an internationally recognized public art and history studio that cultivates and facilitates critical conversations around the past, present and future of monuments. The goal is to produce a collaborative, research-based and community-informed forum focused on the relationship between Cleveland’s residents and its monuments.

    “Monumental Conversations: City Stories” is guided by two questions: what is the story of Cleveland, and where does it live? Together, artists, residents and scholars channel and explore—both playfully and purposefully—Cleveland’s deep and shifting stories of place, in ways that tackle what can be seen and what’s under the surface. The 2021 symposium is part of a longer collaborative project with Monument Lab, culminating in another event at the end of 2022.

    The leaders of this project are professor Elizabeth Bolman, chair of Department of Art History and Art at CWRU; Key Jo Lee, director of academic affairs and associate curator of special projects at the CMA; and Charles Kang, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Art History Leadership at the CMA and CWRU.

Bergman Curator of Medieval Art, introduces visitors to rare art objects from the Cathedral of Saint Paul in Münster, in northwestern Germany, including several reliquaries currently on view in Medieval Treasures from Münster Cathedral. Lutz will discuss the broader contexts of these artworks beyond Europe and how relic collections and reliquaries held spiritual power and political weight for medieval Christians.


  • Visions and Revisions: Behind the Scenes of Revealing Krishna
    Sunday, December 12, 2021, 2 p.m.
    Gartner Auditorium
    Free; reserve tickets

    Science, innovation and digital technologies were integral to the development of the unprecedented exhibition Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia’s Sacred Mountain at the CMA.

    Learn how curators, conservators, engineers, physicists, materials scientists and leaders in the field of technology and digital imaging worked together to understand and convey the form, history and context of the museum’s monumental sandstone sculpture Krishna Lifting Mount Govardhan.

    Conservator Beth Edelstein and digital prototyping director Ainsley Buckner of Sears think[box] at Case Western Reserve University discuss how 3D modeling and printing of the sculpture were used in the conservation process. Curator Sonya Rhie Mace and digital modeling specialist Dale Utt III share how they worked together using 3D models to digitally reconstruct the image of the Cleveland Krishna and virtually install it in its original cave sanctuary. Jane Alexander, chief digital information officer, and Mark Griswold, professor of radiology at CWRU, detail how digital innovations, including high-resolution holograms, allow visitors to effectively experience the sculpture’s story.
