Luminaries: Portraits from the GW Permanent Collection   ( 10:00 AM Feb 11 - 5:00 PM Apr 24 )
Memorable names and faces captured by artists in prints, paintings, and photographs selected from the GW Permanent Collection. The exhibition shows for the first time six screen prints by Andy Warhol, recently gifted to the collection by the Warhol Foundation, including images of Queen Elizabeth II, Mao Zedong and Sitting Bull. February 11, 2015 - April 24, 2015
Menagerie by definition is a strange or diverse collection of people or things. In this group show, each artist has created work in response to their reading of Roland Barthes’ Camera Lucida. This group exhibition explores a wide variety of expression stemming from the concept of memory, a key element in Barthes’ book which is a simultaneous inquiry into the nature and essence of photography and a eulogy to his mother. Though united in source and query, the ways in which each individual artist approaches memory is as varied as the act of recollection its self. Through introspection and physical manifestation, Menagerie is a look into the individual minds, personal pasts, and familial ties of the artists who present their memories as a collection in their ever-changing forms.
