THROUGH SEPTEMBER 8TH
Collectors can contrast between those who willingly share the fact that they have interesting and important artworks in their possession, while other collectors would rather go about their collecting personally and privately. Comprised of artworks borrowed from the latter and composed primarily of the work of contemporary artists, this exhibition is sure to enlighten museum visitors and ponder whether their friends and neighbors are actively collecting artworks. AMoA is grateful to have the opportunity to exhibit these significant artworks that found their way to the Texas Panhandle.
This exhibition touches on the themes of human consumption, capitalism, and humankind’s relationship with nature. Artworks in the exhibition include Vik Muniz’s monumental triptych, WWW (World Map), 2008, from the series Pictures of Junk, as well as intricate dollar bill collages by artist Mark Wagner. Other artists in the exhibition include Dustin Yellin, Max Greis, Joel Morrison, Cuban artist Vicente Hernández, Kara Walker, Chris Jordan, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, and the Dutch artist Teun Hocks.
