Kandinsky: A Retrospective
June 5, 2014–September 1, 2014

This retrospective exhibition celebrates Wassily Kandinsky (Russian, 1866–1944), one of the key figures in Modern art, and showcases the extraordinary collection of Kandinsky’s works in the Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the world-class holdings of the related Blaue Reiter movement in the Mrs. Harry Lynde Bradley Collection at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

 

Uncommon Folk: Traditions in American Art
January 31, 2014–May 4, 2014

This exhibition features an unprecedented selection of American paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, textiles, furniture, and decorative arts from the Milwaukee Art Museum’s world-class collection of folk and self-taught art. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as American art struggled to find its own voice separate from the classical European style that dominated the art world, an authentically American artistic expression was identified in the work of folk and self-taught artists.
