Motion and Emotion: Contemporary Art from Gerhard Richter to Chakaia Booker
February 16, 2012 - June 3, 2012

This stellar selection of works by ten of the most discussed contemporary artists explores the subtle relations between the suggestion of physical movement in a work of art and the experience of the viewer of being moved by it. Artists include Chakaia Booker, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Chuck Close, Mitch Epstein, Christine Hiebert, Rob Pruitt, Gerhard Richter, Alyson Shotz, and Leo Villareal.
