REMIX: Recent Acquisitions
Friday, April 11–Monday, July 28, 2008
An active approach to collecting is at the heart of any museum whose mission and vision is to acquire and exhibit contemporary art. Since its original inception as the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy in 1862, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery has consistently been dedicated to collecting the “art of our time,” and the Permanent Collection has continued to grow in significant ways. Remix Recent Acquisitions presents an overview of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s collecting habits over the course of the past five years.
Comprised of thirty works from internationally renowned contemporary artists, such as Rineke Dijkstra, Cardiff and Miller, Teresita Fernandez, Mona Hatoum, Ernesto Neto, Alan Rath, Laurie Simmons, Evan Penny, Andrea Zittel.
This exhibition spans a variety of media from photography to installation, and several works that are on view for the first time. We welcome the opportunity to help you get acquainted with these new additions, which will ensure the prominence and significance of the Albright-Knox in the future and become favorites for years to come.
