If You Are Completely Obsessed by Modern Art, You Cannot Afford to Miss This Exhibit

When you want to view the coolest art exhibits in town, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is a museum of post-World War II art in Fort Worth. The museum dates back to 1892 and its current building in the city's Cultural District opened in 2002. It can show up to 150 works of art and its permanent collection includes more than 3,000 works.

Currently on display is "Spaces and Places: Works from the Collection". This exhibit gathers work by artists who address concepts of space and place. Drawn entirely from the Modern's permanent collection, the exhibition includes paintings, photographs, drawings, and videos by artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, and Mexico. The categories of space and place are broadly conceived, encompassing nature, the city, environment, geography, and atmosphere.

The sites presented range from natural to man-made, cosmic to microcosmic, real to fictional, and sublime to commonplace, while artistic approaches vary from representation to abstraction, documentary to conceptual. The selection reflects the diverse ways that artists engage space and place to explore questions of identity, memory, history, power, technology, nostalgia, and more.

Works by notable artists Dennis Blagg, Julie Bozzi, Mark Bradford, Thomas Demand, Vernon Fisher, Candida Höfer, Alex Katz, Vera Lutter, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, Cindy Sherman, Melanie Smith, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Thomas Struth, and Frank Thiel are also included in this presentation, each relating to space and place in unique ways. We encourage you to stop by while you can!
