An installation of three powerful paintings by modern art masters Mondrian, Léger, and Kandinsky, on loan from the distinguished collection of Carolina alumnus Julian H. Robertson, Jr. (B.A. ’55).
This installation presents the deities and artistic traditions of religions in Asia, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and more.
Step Right Up, a “stickwork” by Chapel Hill-based artist Patrick Dougherty, is the Ackland’s first major site-specific, outdoor art installation in nearly 20 years.
On view are recent acquisitions of 19th- and 20th-century beadwork by peoples of the South East Cape region of what is now South Africa.
The theme of the fourth in our ongoing series of selections from the recently donated Peck Collection of Dutch and Flemish drawings is “Revelries and Celebrations.”
Spanning several millennia, as well as the color spectrum, this show presents a continent’s rich history of innovation, invention, and imitation.
In this beautifully designed installation, the Ackland presents a powerful and stimulating selection of over 260 works from its extensive permanent collection.
