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.

Contemplating the View: American Landscape Photographs
This exhibition highlights one of the Addison collection's great strengths--images of the American landscape, both natural and manmade. Whether historical or contemporary, fact or fiction, abstract or representative, celebratory or critical, private exploration or social document, all of the photographs assembled in this show comment to one degree or another on the contesting powers of culture and nature. The complex dialogue these images foster prods us to consider the contrast between our myths and realities. Works by photographers such as Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, Lois Conner, Marcia Resnick, Carleton Watkins, Edward Weston, and Katherine Wolkoff present more than mere description. As vehicles for artistic, personal, and cultural expression they challenge us to examine and reflect upon who we are.

From Starfield to MARS: Paul Manship and His Artistic Legacy
This exhibition celebrates the artistic legacy of the significant early twentieth century sculptor, Paul Manship and marks the transformation of his former summer house and studio, Starfield, by the Manship Artists Residency? + Studios (MARS), into a location that hosts artists-in-residence at the spectacular Gloucester, MA, site. The first of the two interconnected sections of the exhibition, Art Deco at Andover, includes sculpture drawn from the Addison's collection combined with models, studies, and ephemera from the artist's estate to illustrate Manship's working methods. The second section, Starfield through Contemporary Lenses, presents new work by distinguished photographers, Barbara Bosworth, Justin Kimball, S. Billie Mandle, and Abelardo Morell. The result of the artists' year-long explorations of the house, grounds, outbuildings, and archives, these bodies of work reflect four unique perspectives and aesthetic approaches to the interpretation of Manship's home.
