Fall 2017 Exhibitions Opening

September 8, 2017
Member Preview 6-7p, Public Reception 7-9p

Join the Kemper Art Museum for a reception celebrating the opening of the fall exhibitions.

The installation Kader Attia: Reason’s Oxymorons (2015), composed of 18 video interviews presented in a set of office cubicles, examines themes of injury, trauma, and repair as envisioned in both Western and non-Western cultures. 

Renaissance and Baroque Prints: Investigating the Collection offers a unique opportunity to study the Museum’s rich collection of prints from the late 15th to 18th centuries, much of which has rarely been shown. 

In the Teaching Gallery, Reframing Feminism: Visualizing Women, Gender & Sexuality reflects on the relationships among art, activism, and feminist movements through a broad selection of artworks from the permanent collection.
