The exhibition “Modern and Contemporary Art: Selected Works from the Permanent Art Collection” will be on display at the University of the South in the University Archives Gallery from Feb. 5–July 31, 2018. Representative works from the early 20th century will be shown, including artists Kathe Kollowitz, Alexander Calder and Josef Albers. More recent work by Robert Rauschenberg and the conceptual photographs of Laurel Nakadate will also be on exhibit.
Many of the works of art are from generous donations received by the University or purchases made by University acquisitions. Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, chair of the Art, Art History, and Visual Studies Department, will give a talk about some of the highlights of the exhibition at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 8, in the Lytle Reading Room in University Archives. A reception will follow.
