The Addison's rich collections provide a great many points of entry for understanding the history and development of American art from the 18th century to the present. The almost limitless opportunities these afford for thematic and chronological presentations offering new interpretations are enhanced through additions to the holdings and thoughtful combinations of works. This fall, in four first-floor galleries, four curators have explored a theme, style, or artistic idiom represented in depth across the many media in the collection. This selection of works examines the representation of women, the investigation of abstraction at its introduction and, later, at mid-century, and the use of technology. In each room, the groupings include intriguing works of sculpture--an opportunity to reflect upon the precedents for and successors to the figural work of Paul Manship, whose important works--both hallowed and innovative subjects--may be found on the second floor.

The Body: Concealing and Revealing

Drawn from the museum's collection, this exhibition examines the ways in which artists have used the human body as a provocative tool of expression. Cropped, abstracted, veiled, and even erased, fragmented figures depicted in works by artists as varied as Alexander Archipenko, Bill Jacobson, John Singer Sargent, Beverly Semmes, Edward Weston, and Francesca Woodman suggest that the part is often more evocative than the whole. Avoiding precise likenesses and full disclosure, the artists gathered here employ blurred forms, truncated torsos, masked faces, and empty dresses to variously present the body as a site for not only visual experimentation, but also defining individual identity, constructing and challenging notions of gender and sexuality, and negotiating power.

In and Out of Place

What is place? Is it a set of discrete coordinates fixed in space or something less concrete, something harder to define? Drawn from the Addison's rich holdings of American art from the colonial era to the present, this exhibition endeavors to investigate the nuanced and varied physical and human characteristics that set place apart from mere location. Divided into three salient categories: nature, home, and city, the works on view demonstrate the ways in which our individual, subjective notions of place are fundamentally shaped by visual imagery. A cozy hearth and a warm fire, throngs of people on a congested sidewalk, lofty mountain peaks reflected in crystal clear water--themes repeated across centuries of paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures--conjure images both vivid and visceral. While perhaps representative of a specific home, city, or site in nature, the signifiers of place on view in these galleries transcend the particular to appeal to the universal.?
