Teachers in the Galleries

Tue, Feb 7, 2012 4:30 PM

Enjoy free access to our winter exhibitions and learn about exhibition themes that can connect to your classroom. All teachers and administrators and their families are welcome. Click here to RSVP.

The evening will cover these three exhibitions.

David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy takes a fresh look at the famed sculptor’s work, focusing on his interest in geometry. The exhibition features a number of previously unexhibited works on paper.

In her film Points on a Line, Sarah Morris takes viewers to modernist landmarks by Philip Johnson and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe while investigating the connections and power structures that shape the built environment.

Ernst Caramelle's site-specific installation transforms the Wexner Center’s lower lobby into a three-dimensional painting.

David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made possible by Alice and Nahum Lainer, the National Endowment for the Arts, Gagosian Gallery, and the Steven F. Roth Family Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Steaven K. and Judith G. Jones Foundation, Myron Laskin, Agnes Gund, Dorothy R. Sherwood, Terri and Michael Smooke, the Dedalus Foundation, Ellie and Mark Lainer, and the Lipman Family Foundation.

Reservations are not required—just meet the docent at the entrance to the galleries at the scheduled time. (If you plan to visit with more than 10 individuals and you would like to schedule a docent-led tour, click here for more information.)

The exhibition’s presentation at the Wexner Center is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities and a generous grant from the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation.
