Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel
October 9, 2022, through January 8, 2023
Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery

With subjects ranging from hell scenes to popular proverbs, the range of engaging themes showcased in the newest exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA), Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel will entrance and surprise visitors. This once-in-a-lifetime exhibition introduces audiences to the immense diversity of works made during the rapid urbanization and mercantile expansion of the Northern Renaissance, exploring issues that remain relevant today, such as religious conflict and freedom and the ethics and excesses of wealth. The exhibition features a variety of imaginative sketches, preparatory works and finished drawings, made with precise pen-and-ink, vibrant watercolor and layered chalk techniques.

On view in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery through January 8, 2023, Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel contains rarely seen drawings from the Albertina Museum in Vienna, one of Europe’s oldest and finest collections. The selection of 101 drawings is combined with choice examples from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s holdings.

Docent tours are offered on Tuesdays and Sundays at 1:15 pm, starting Sunday, October 16.

The exhibition was organized in cooperation with the Albertina Museum, Vienna.

Impressionism to Modernism: The Keithley Collection
Through January 8, 2023
Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery

In March 2020, Clevelanders Joseph P. and Nancy F. Keithley gave and promised their private collection of more than 100 works of art to the Cleveland Museum of Art, the largest gift of art to the museum since the bequest of Leonard C. Hanna Jr. in 1958. For the first time, the collection will be on view in its entirety in the CMA’s newest exhibition, Impressionism to Modernism: The Keithley Collection, from September 11, 2022, to January 8, 2023 in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Hall.

Throughout two decades of collecting, the Keithleys selected works of art to complement and enrich the CMA’s collection. At times, the Keithleys built upon a strength in the museum’s collection; on other occasions, they acquired a work of art that would bring something entirely new to the collection. Certain works of art in the Keithleys’ gift and promised gift are shown alongside paintings, drawings or objects from the CMA’s collection, inviting visitors to discover connections, contrasts and poetic conversations between familiar, favorite works of art and new objects from the Keithleys.

The Keithleys’ collection focuses on Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and modern European and American paintings. Among the highlights in Impressionism to Modernism: The Keithley Collection

are five paintings by Pierre Bonnard; four each by Maurice Denis and Édouard Vuillard; two each by Milton Avery, Georges Braque, Gustave Caillebotte, Joan Mitchell and Félix Vallotton; and individual pictures of outstanding quality by Henri-Edmond Cross, Vilhelm Hammershøi, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro and Andrew Wyeth.

Among the works on paper are six watercolors by John Marin, five drawings by Bonnard and a spectacular pastel by Eugène Boudin. Also included in the exhibition is a selection of European and American decorative arts. The Keithleys also collected Chinese and contemporary Japanese ceramics. In the exhibition, Asian ceramics are shown alongside Western paintings and drawings to echo the harmonies created by the Keithleys, who enjoyed thoughtfully juxtaposing the works in their home.

Exhibition Tickets

Adults $15; seniors, students and children ages 6 through 17 $12; children 5 and under and CMA members FREE

The CMA recommends reserving tickets through its online platform by visiting the Keithley Collection exhibition webpage. Tickets can also be reserved by phone at 216-421-7350 or on-site at one of the ticket desks.

Exhibition tours are offered at 11:15 a.m. daily, September 17 through December 31.

All exhibitions at the Cleveland Museum of Art are underwritten by the CMA Fund for Exhibitions. Principal annual support is provided by Michael Frank in memory of Patricia Snyder. Major annual support is provided by the Womens Council of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Generous annual support is provided by an anonymous supporter, Dick Blum (deceased) and Harriet Warm, Cynthia and Dale Brogan, Dr. Ben and Julia Brouhard, Mr. and Mrs. Walter R.

This exhibition is supported in part by the Ohio Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Ohio and the National Endowment for the Arts.

FRONT International 2022: Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows
Various closing dates October 2, 2022, through January 15, 2023

Multivenue exhibition featuring installations at the Cleveland Museum of Art

For the second iteration of FRONT International, the Cleveland Museum of Art has organized presentations on-site, featuring installations and performances by internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. The multivenue FRONT International’s Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows embraces art as an agent of transformation, a mode of healing and a therapeutic process. The title is an homage to the 1957 poem “Two Somewhat Different Epigrams” by Langston Hughes. A tender, brutal and provocative prayer, the poem meditates on the inseparability of joy and suffering. Expanding on Hughes’s invocation, FRONT 2022 explores how art making offers the possibility to transform and heal people—as individuals, as groups and as a society.

The exhibition features more than 100 regional, national and international artists working across painting, drawing, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, photography, video, text, performance and other media, demonstrating how aesthetic pleasure—sharing joy through movement, music, craft and color—can bridge differences between people to bring them together. Spanning over 30 sites in Cleveland, Akron and Oberlin, the exhibition suggests ways that art making can speak with power: by showing people how to recognize and reimagine the invisible structures that govern contemporary life.

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.

All exhibitions at the Cleveland Museum of Art are underwritten by the CMA Fund for Exhibitions.

Text and Image in Southern Asia
Through March 5, 2023
Gallery 242B
FREE

Text and Image in Southern Asia proudly displays the illuminated manuscripts from the CMA’s important collection that were translated, identified and dated by Phyllis Granoff, Lex Hixon Professor Emerita of World Religions at Yale University, whose work we honor on the occasion of her recent retirement. Lavish devotional books made for Jain and Buddhist communities are included, with examples from India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Myanmar (Burma), ranging from the 1100s to 1800s. Complementing the display are Buddhist and Jain paintings, votive sculptures and vintage photographs of temples and sites that are major repositories of medieval manuscripts. 

The Medieval Top Seller: The Book of Hours 
Through July 30, 2023 

Gallery 115
FREE

A book of hours is a type of devotional book that was extremely popular in the Middle Ages, when an estimated quarter of all households owned one. Books of hours were intended for the vast majority of laypeople and contain daily prayers and those used on special occasions. Fully customizable, these precious volumes are windows into the medieval world and the lives of their original owners. 

Final Week!

Japan’s Floating World (日本の浮世)
Through 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. 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.

Creating Urgency: Modern and Contemporary Korean Art
Through October 23, 2022

Korea Foundation Gallery | Gallery 236
FREE

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.

Escaping to a Better World: Eccentrics and Immortals in Chinese Art
Through November 6, 2022

Clara T. Rankin Galleries of Chinese Art | Gallery 240A
FREE

In times of a pandemic, migration crises, and frequent natural and humanitarian disasters, the theme of this exhibition may resonate with many of us. In fact, the idea of escaping to a better world has long been part of China’s culture, embedded in the country’s religious and philosophical thinking. China’s legendary eccentrics and immortals often exhibit unconventional appearances and behaviors, expressing supernatural power and a rejection of everyday norms. By doing this, they embody the longing for an ideal world. This installation presents paintings, porcelain and metalwork, all mediums in which these popular figures and their stories were depicted throughout the ages, including today.

Native North America
Through December 4, 2022

Sarah P. and William R. Robertson Gallery | Gallery 231
FREE

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
FREE

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
Through December 18, 2022

Galleries 108A–C
FREE

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.

Contemporary Installation
Toby’s Gallery for Contemporary Art | Galleries 229A and C

Paula and Eugene Stevens Gallery | Gallery 229B
FREE

This installation invites visitors to experience new conversations among works created after 1960 by a diverse range of artists. The Cleveland Museum of Art is honored to feature Kerry James Marshall’s masterpiece Bang (1994), on loan from the Progressive Corporation, in conversation with works from the museum’s collection—including recent acquisitions, such as Rashid Johnson’s Standing Broken Men (2021) and Kambui Olujimi’s Italo (2021), as well as longtime CMA favorites, like Andy Warhol’s Marilyn x 100 (1962). Other highlights of the installation are recently acquired sculptures by Melvin Edwards, a radiant textile by Olga de Amaral that has not been exhibited for many years and special private collection loans by Chris Ofili and Elias Sime. Together, the works on view demonstrate the various perspectives, backgrounds and identities that animate contemporary art.

On-site Programs

Lunchtime Lecture: CMA Backstories: Women Collectors Build Cleveland Collections
Tuesday, October 4, 2022, 12 p.m.

Gartner Auditorium
FREE; ticket required

The Cleveland Museum of Art is renowned for the quality and breadth of its collection. Throughout the years, the museum has relied on the expertise and generosity of benefactors, many of whom were women, to achieve this goal. In this lecture, Leslie Cade, director of Ingalls Library and Museum Archives, introduces a few of these extraordinary women, including Emery May Norweb, whose Pre-Columbian art formed the basis of the museum’s collection in that area, and India Early Minshall, an expert in Russian history and Fabergé.

Paolo Angeli
Tuesday, October 4, 2022, 7:30 p.m.

Gartner Auditorium
Ticket required

The guitarist, composer, ethnomusicologist and instrument builder Paolo Angeli is associated with traditional Sardinian music. Whatever you want to call it, nobody else is doing it quite like this. Paolo Angeli, the Sardinian sorcerer, manually magics beautiful, multilayered music from his unique prepared guitar: a hybrid orchestra of an instrument with strings going in all directions, foot pedal–controlled motorized propellers and hammers to create shimmering drones and bass-lines as he bows, strikes, plucks and strums while producing rhythmic atmospherics by treading on a plastic bag and adjusting tunings on the fly. Electronic effects are utilized but no loops. With this singular instrument he improvises and composes unclassifiable music, suspended between traditional music of Sardinia, free jazz, flamenco, Arabic suggestions, post-folk and pre–everything else, and came back in Sardinia with his voice into the furrows of tradition.

Paolo Angeli will be performing music from his latest album, Rade.

Tickets $25; CMA members $22

This concert is presented in collaboration with the Consulate of Italy in Detroit.
