Eye on the Collection
Always present but ever-changing, the Addison's permanent collection is reinstalled several times a year as a way for varied audiences to experience anew the wealth of the holdings of American art. With the collection now numbering more than 17,000 objects and growing, the museum is committed to displaying a wide range of works, both those well-known and those lesserknown, for discovery and appreciation by all visitors. This season the Addison presents paintings, photographs, and sculpture from the 18th through 20th centuries by artists such as Arthur Wesley Dow, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Charles Sheeler.

Seen and Unseen

Inspired by Invisible Citings: Elaine Reichek and Jeanne Silverthorne, this exhibition of contemporary works drawn from the collection explores the relationship between word and image as well as the concept of invisibility. Representing a wide range of artistic approaches, these objects attest to the poignant, subversive, and sometimes humorous expressions generated by the dynamic dialogue between art and language. Photographers Dawoud Bey and Wendy Ewald pair portraits with texts to reveal the inner and unseen selves of their subjects. Glenn Ligon provocatively pushes the limits of legibility to comment both on language and its ability to communicate and invisibility as it relates to issues of identity, race, and gender. Sandow Birk incorporates historical documents into satirical drawings that expose the gaps between national rhetoric and reality. Separating word and image, Sarah Charlesworth's Herald Tribune includes appropriated newspaper front pages from which all text has been removed. Leaving only the masthead and images intact, the artist exposes the subtle ways in which ideas are conveyed and power structures are perpetuated by pictures.

Invisible Citings: Elaine Reichek and Jeanne Silverthorne

Invisible Citings is a collaborative project by Elaine Reichek and Jeanne Silverthorne--two artists who happen to be longtime friends and avid readers. This exhibition joins Reichek's embroidery and Silverthorne's sculpture with literature in an exploration of their shared interest in text and notions of invisibility. As the so-called Gutenberg age gives way to glowing screens, this exhibition celebrates writing as material and medium and looks to the printed page to consider invisibility. Compiling and reading diverse texts and then painstakingly translating them into compelling works of art, the artists address themes such as the legible and obscured, word and image, illumination and luminescence, archiving and discarding.
