Between Art and Life: from Joseph Cornell to Gabriel OrozcoNovember 28, 2003 - April 4, 2004
This installation of Miami Art Museum's permanent collection showcases the recent acquisition of six works by Joseph Cornell donated to the museum by the Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation. The exhibition explores the varying ways in which artists from the mid-twentieth century to the present have taken their inspiration from images and objects borrowed from the world around them.
The exhibition includes works by an international roster of artists, such as Marcel Duchamp, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Gabriel Orozco, and others. In addition to works from MAM's permanent collection, the exhibition includes loans from a variety of other sources, as well as site specific installations by Miami artists Guerra de la Paz and Tom Scicluna.
Organized by Miami Art Museum and curated by Assistant Director for Programs/Senior Curator Peter Boswell. Supported by Miami Art Museum's Annual Exhibition Fund.
