Exhibition: Once upon a time… The Western. A new frontier in Art and Film

Co-organized by the Denver Art Museum and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, this is first major exhibition to examine the Western genre and its evolution from the mid-1800s to the present through fine art, film, and popular culture. Featuring 450 paintings, sculptures, installations photos and numerous film excerpts, the exhibition explores gender roles, race relations, and gun violence—offering a visual journey that is more than cowboys and American Indians, pursuits and duels, or bandits and barroom brawls.

The exhibition is also on view at the Denver Art Museum, Denver Colorado, as The Western: An Epic in Art and Film (May 27–September 10, 2017).
