Upcoming @ OCMA – The Avant-Garde Collection

The Avant Garde Collection is a much anticipated show taking place at OCMA beginning next week.  The show will run from September 7, 2014 – January 4, 2015. The Avant-Garde Collection traces the museum’s acquisitions highlights across five decades, with a specific focus on the evolving definition of avant-garde during that period.  Drawn entirely from OCMA’s collection, the selection’s underlying premise is to combine the retroactive gaze that enables us to determine which artists transcended the avant-garde of their time and which did not, with an historical effort to reconsider works that may have been visible in their heyday but have since slipped from view, there awaiting future scholarly reassessment.
