Currents: Recent Acquisitions

Dates subject to change

Currents: Recent Acquisitions: The Hirshhorn presents more than forty of nearly two hundred works acquired by the Museum during the last four years. The exhibition features works from 1967 forward by both influential, established artists and emerging artists, including Andrea Bowers, Mona Hatoum, Ernesto Neto, Paul Pfeiffer, Robin Rhode and Allen Ruppersberg. The installation reflects the great diversity of works being acquired by the Museum-from conceptual photography to sculpture-and allows visitors to consider works by artists from a range of generations, countries, cultures, and backgrounds. The works on view have entered the collection in a number of ways: as gifts, as purchases proposed by Hirshhorn curators and approved by the Board of Trustees and as purchases made through the Contemporary Acquisitions Council, a membership group that facilitates the acquisition of works by emerging artists.

This exhibition is organized by Curator Anne Ellegood.
