Everything Is Rhythm Featured At TMA
Everything Is Rhythm: Mid-Century Art and Music in the New Media Gallery at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) runs through February 23. In this multisensory exhibition, music and art are brought together as 14 visual art masterpieces are paired with carefully selected musical accompaniments.
Everything Is Rhythm is jointly curated by Halona Norton-Westbrook, director of curatorial affairs, and Scott Boberg, manager of programs and audience engagement.
The pairings of the visual and musical works in the exhibition, which includes both the historical and contemporary, have been purposefully combined for a variety of reasons.
The title of the exhibition, Everything Is Rhythm, takes its inspiration from a quote by the painter Larry Poons, whose work is prominently featured in the final section of this exhibition. Everything Is Rhythm will be accompanied by a series of in-gallery concerts.
Admission to the exhibition is free.
TMA Adds New Artwork To Global Conversations
The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) has added new works of art to the contemporary exhibition, Global Conversations: Art in Dialogue. The museum has also extended the closing date of the exhibition until April 26.
Located in Levis Gallery, Global Conversations: Art in Dialogue features approximately 50 objects encompassing a wide array of media—sculpture, painting, studio glass, works on paper and mixed media.
In addition to glass installation “A Rainbow Like You” by artist Katherine Gray and “Man and World,” a large-scale ceramic work by artist Viola Frey, which were installed in August, five new works of art were recently installed. Three additional contemporary works of art will be added to the exhibition in the upcoming month.
Among the new artists featured are Duke Riley, Donis Dayan Llago, Sherry Markowitz and Aleksandra Stoyanov. In the coming weeks, the museum will also install artwork by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Yun-Fei Ji and John Yoga. Along with the new artists, an additional work by Hung Liu has been added to the exhibition.
The majority of the works of art featured in the exhibition have been added to the museum’s collection over the last decade. Considered together, they represent a broad perspective on the concerns of artists working today in diverse regions around the world.
