Terra Foundation-supported Events

Exhibition: Mapping the Collection

The exhibition Mapping the Collection takes a new look at two influential decades in the history of US art: the 1960s and 1970s. Through a selection of artworks from the Museum Ludwig’s permanent collection as well as several key loans, the exhibition explores issues of equality, indigenous self-determination, women’s rights, and Black Power. The political and social context of these two decades form the background against which individual artistic response is studied. In turn, the exhibition questions a Western European conception and reception of American art.

This exhibition is the result of the Terra Foundation Research Fellowship in American Art at the Museum Ludwig.

Exhibition: Robert Morris. The Perceiving Body

In contrast to the survey model, this exhibition focuses on Robert Morris’s work made between the early 1960s and late 1970s—most, if not all, of which are considered key works of Minimal and Post-minimal art. The selected works address an artistic practice that contributed to the transformation of art making in an era of political turmoil and profound historical change.

Exhibition: Edward Hopper

Now extended through September 20, this exhibition presents Edward Hopper’s landscape and cityscape paintings. This focus on landscape offers a unique angle on the American painter’s work. In the art-historical tradition, landscape has always implied humankind’s impact on nature, and Hopper’s paintings reflect this in a subtle and multifaceted way through non-picturesque depictions. The show includes  oil paintings, drawings, and watercolors, ranging in date from the early 1910s to the 1960s.

Online Event: “SORDID SCANDAL: AMALIA ULMAN”

Part of the Terra Foundation for American Art Series: New Perspectives, Sordid Scandal is a new video essay and performance by acclaimed artist Amalia Ulman. This unique online video and performance was inspired by Andy Warhol. In the form of a PowerPoint presentation, the work combines personal and family confession with ideas from science and history.

Audiences should expect a darkly comic exploration of identity and artistic persona. How much does fiction shape the real?

The video essay and performance will be exclusively hosted on Tate’s website from September 3–7, 2020, accompanied by a written introduction by Tate’s Public Programmes team. A live discussion with Amalia Ulman and guests takes place on 7 September 2020.
