Exhibition Opening: People Get Ready
Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 10:00am to Sunday, January 6, 2019 - 10:00am
Since opening in 2005, the Nasher Museum has been dedicated to building a groundbreaking collection of contemporary art. In this effort, the museum recognizes and supports global artists of extraordinary vision, whose works spark opportunities for deep and thoughtful engagement. The Nasher Museum's collecting strategy emphasizes works by diverse artists who have been historically underrepresented, or even excluded, by mainstream arts institutions, and maintains a particular focus on artists of African descent. Drawing primarily on the collection built over the last 12 years, "People Get Ready: Building a Contemporary Collection" includes works dating from 1970 through 2018 that engage issues ranging from cultural identity to social justice and environmentalism.
