Visitors will discover 16 refreshed and revitalized galleries showcasing masterworks by Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol alongside more than a dozen new acquisitions created by established and emerging artists working today, including a major architectural intervention by Sarah Oppenheimer.

More than 100 objects—including paintings, sculpture, photography, drawings, prints, and video—are presented thematically in galleries improved with state-of-the art lighting and new interiors. The BMA’s contemporary wing, which opened in 1994, houses a significant collection of American art from the last six decades with major late paintings by Warhol, as well as works by Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Glenn Ligon, Bruce Nauman, and Anne Truitt. The museum also holds an outstanding group of works by influential international artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Thomas Hirschhorn, and Franz West; and artists whose work makes a profound social statement, including pieces by David Hammons, General Idea, Zoe Leonard, Josephine Meckseper, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres.

A series of innovative art exhibitions and programs focuses on emerging and mid-career artists, giving visitors opportunities to experience a variety of cutting-edge perspectives every four months.
