AMON CARTER MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART
October 1, 2017 - January 29, 2018
Abstract Texas: Midcentury Modern Painting ends Oct. 8. Nature/Culture explores the dichotomy reflective of how nature counterpoints and enlivens our built environment and the problematic use of the term, and its cousin “natural,” when applied to snapshots, portraits, and Native American cultures-through Dec. 10. On view through Jan. 14, Archiving Eden displays the work of North Texas photographer Dornith Doherty who traveled the globe to construct a visual meditation on the planet’s botanical diversity by showcasing the work of international seed banks. Through Feb 11, Caught on Paper surveys popular outdoor subjects that captivate American artists by bringing together more than thirty works on paper from the Amon Carter’s permanent collection. A fitting companion and contradiction to the celebratory exhibitions Wild Spaces, Open Seasons and Caught on Paper, the film Hugh the Hunter engages with contemporary issues of race, class, and the practice of hunting. Runs through Feb. 18.
