This is the inaugural exhibition of a new series of exhibitions to be curated by UM faculty. Entitled Flip Your Field, this series asks these guest curators to consider artwork outside their field of specialization from UMMA’s renowned collections to challenge their own thinking as well as that of UMMA’s audiences. Celeste Brusati, Professor of History of Art, Women’s Studies, and Art and Design, an expert in the visual art and culture of the Netherlands from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries, has gathered a compelling group of images by such titans of twentieth-century abstraction as Lee Bontecou, Helen Frankenthaler, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miró, Robert Motherwell, and Antonio Tàpies, as well as works by many other unexpected artists.
