July 2013—February 2014

Following on the great success of Order, Chaos, and The Space Between, we hope to build upon our visitors’ interest and engagement with Latin American art by installing thirteen artworks from the Diane and Bruce Halle collection into the Museum’s Katz Wing. These works have been integrated into a select group of pieces from the Museum’s own contemporary collection, underscoring meaningful connections as well as points of contrast.

Order, Chaos, and the Space Between

Order, Chaos, and the Space Between: Contemporary Latin American Art from the Diane and Bruce Halle Collection

Dates: February 6 — May 6, 2013

Text: Drawn from the internationally renowned Diane and Bruce Halle Collection, Order, Chaos, and the Space Between presents contemporary, cutting edge works by Latin American artists who question the nature of the creative process. Whether working on canvas, in sculpture, photography, video, or installation, these radical innovators have transformed traditional artistic languages into new ways of creating and conceiving works of art. This exhibition of the Halle collection will help to foster greater awareness of many groundbreaking 20th and 21st century Latin American artists and the tremendous scope of their creative endeavors.
