Allen Memorial Art Museum present Modern and Contemporary Realisms

. September 11, 2013

Allen Memorial Art Museum present Modern and Contemporary Realisms an exhibition on view through June 22, 2014.

Featuring works from the AMAM’s collection representing movements such as Surrealism, Pop, Socialist Realism, and Photorealism, this exhibition examines diverse approaches to the concept of realism from the 20th and 21st centuries. The paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs on view in Modern and Contemporary Realisms are all united by their origin in a recognizable subject, but are realized with varying degrees of naturalism. Rather than attempting to create truthful representations of actual people, places, or objects, these artists filter their subjects through their own particular style or aesthetic.
