Abstract Art from UMMA's Collection
Explore UMMA's collection of twentieth-century color abstract art through the eyes of Celeste Brusati, UM Professor of History of Art, Women's Studies, and Art and Design, and guest curator of UMMA's exhibition Flip Your Field: Abstract Art from the Collection. Discover the styles of artists such as Miró, Frankenthaler, and Kandinsky, and learn to emulate their works using an ink and gauche technique.
On view June 9 through September 2, UMMA's Flip Your Field project series invites scholars to take a fresh look at our collection by curating a show outside their area of expertise. For the first exhibition in the series, UM Professor of History of Art, Women’s Studies, and Art and Design Celeste Brusati—an expert in the visual art and culture of the Netherlands from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries—will curate an exhibition of twentieth-century color abstract prints in the A. Alfred Taubman Gallery.
This exhibition is made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
