  A Gathering: Sculpture from the Collection
November 21, 2018 - February 27, 2019
 
A Gathering: Sculpture from the Collection includes 19 objects spanning a period of fifty-five years (1947-2002), and highlighting the versatility of materials worked by different hands. The artists in the exhibition employ steel, aluminum, wood, and found objects to explore movement, sound, origin, transformation, minimalist form, and the specificity of three-dimensional objects in space. According to artist John Chamberlain, “Every material has a different density, different weight… Every hand squeezes differently. In finding your place in sculpture, you need to find the material that offers you just the right resistance. As it turns out, car metal offers me the correct resistance so that I can make a form – not overform it or underform it.” The exhibition includes sculpture that ranges from the figurative to the abstract and from the playful to the profound.
 
Artists included in the exhibition are François Baschet, Harry Bertoia, Chakaia Booker, Alexander Calder, John Chamberlain, Melvin Edwards, Robert Goodnough, Robert Helsmoortel, Donald Judd, Barbara Korman, Heinz Mack, George Rickey, Arthur Simms, Kenneth Snelson, Günther Uecker, Ursula von Rydingsvard
 
The exhibition was organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York and curated by Avis Larson, Assistant Curator. Generous support for this project is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Purchase College Foundation

 Then and Now: Modern and Contemporary Selections
from the Permanent Collection

 
 
The Neuberger Museum of Art celebrates the return of some of its most precious treasures after being on national tour across the country for over a year. Included in Then and Noware works by some of our most beloved artists including Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Arthur Dove, Helen Frankenthaler, Marsden Hartley, Hans Hofmann, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and David Smith. Amid these works contemporary art from the collection also are installed, in keeping with the spirit of our founding patron, Roy. R. Neuberger, who was committed to supporting the work of living artists, particularly during the formative years of their careers. As he once observed, “The contemporary world should buy the work of contemporary artists.”
 
Generous support for this project is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.
 
 
 
 African Art from the Permanent Collection
 
 
African art has been an integral part of the Neuberger Museum of Art since it opened in 1974. In 1999, the collection almost doubled in size with the major gift of 153 works from the collection of the late Lawrence Gussman, a notable collector and a resident of Scarsdale, New York. Only a small portion of the collection was on view until October 12, 2007 when the Neuberger Museum of Art opened its brilliantly refurbished gallery and vastly expanded the number of objects on view from thirty-five to eighty-two.
