The subject of this new film is Nadia Murad, a young Iraqi Yazidi woman who became a human rights activist after surviving genocide and sexual slavery at the hands of ISIS.
Charles Burchfield: The Ohio Landscapes, 1915–1920 explores the key role that northeast Ohio played in the art and life of American artist Charles Burchfield.
A leading figure of American Pictorialist photography, Ohio-born Clarence H. White (1871–1925) was an influential teacher and a gifted artist celebrated for his beautiful scenes of quiet domesticity and outdoor idylls.
Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern offers a unique look into the fascinating connections between the paintings, personal style, and public persona of one of America’s most iconic artists. Throughout her 70-year career, O’Keeffe defied convention and forged a fiercely independent identity that was integral to her art. Showcasing several of her paintings alongside her garments—many shown here for the first time—and photographic portraits of her as a subject, the exhibition reveals O’Keeffe’s determination to be strikingly modern not only in her art but in her life.
On view for the first time in North America, the recently restored Valois Tapestries, a unique set of 16th-century hangings, are unveiled in this exhibition. These fascinating and enigmatic tapestries were commissioned by Catherine de’ Medici, the indomitable queen mother of France, to celebrate the royal Valois dynasty against a backdrop of great political strife and social upheaval. Soon after their creation in Brussels, the eight room-sized hangings accompanied Catherine’s granddaughter, Christina of Lorraine, when the young princess traveled to the Medici court in Florence as the bride of Ferdinand I de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany.
Drawn from the museum’s collection, this exhibition features work by contemporary artists who exploit printed and photographic media in ways that intentionally reveal the confusing line between art and information, fact and fiction.
