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.

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.?

Harlem: In Situ

??Harlem is as much a place as a myth. Throughout the 20th century, this northern Manhattan neighborhood has been written into history as many things; however, in this context, Harlem is ultimately and unceasingly, a black creative mecca, a place whose rich social and cultural fabric has been woven out of the abundance of people of African descent worldwide who have come together in its streets, salons, parks, restaurants, and clubs, influencing generations of artists, musicians, and writers. Harlem: In Situ explores the depth and complexity of this renowned neighborhood, highlighting the work of some of the most important visual artists working from the late 1920s through today. Initially inspired by the Addison's trove of Harlem street-photography, which includes significant bodies of work such as Harlem Document (1935) by Aaron Siskind, Harlem Heroes (1930-1960) by Carl van Vechten, Harlem, USA (1975-1979) by Dawoud Bey (a three-time Elson Artist-in-Residence at Phillips Academy), 1920s-1950s (Harlem) by Lucien Aigner, and The Sweet Flypaper of Life (1984) by Roy DeCarava, this show also includes prints from the collection by Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, James Lesesne Wells, and Vincent D. Smith, as well as several key works by nearly a dozen artists, working across time and media, including Charles Als?ton, Jordan Casteel, Aaron Douglas, Miatta Kawinzi, Alice Neel, Lorraine O'Grady, and Kehinde Wiley, that will come to the Addison as loans from sister institutions. These artists and their works investigate the legacy and trajectory of Harlem, which encompasses mass migration, opulence, cultural renaissance, depression, demise, empowerment, pride, and gentrification.
