All Upcoming Exhibitions
A visitor favorite since her first appearance in 1984, Linda, is returning to the DAM after a long hiatus. Last on display at the DAM in 2009, Linda has since been kept in darkened, climate-controlled storage to ensure her preservation.
This exhibition also features two other sculptures by John DeAndrea, Artist and Model, and Nude with Black Drape. The latter is a newly completed work.
Virgil Ortiz is an internationally renowned ceramicist, fashion designer, and graphic artist from Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico. He uses contemporary art to blend historic events with futuristic elements. Set against Ortiz’s graphic murals, this exhibition features 31 clay figures and invites visitors to immerse themselves in a storyline that Ortiz created that begins with the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. This is the first exhibition of his work to visually tell the whole story.
Gifts, promised gifts, and works that the museum purchased over the last seven years are the focus of our next rotation in the modern and contemporary galleries.
The collection is the principal artery of a museum. It’s here where the idea for the next big show might be sparked, where artists and amateurs alike find their inspiration and a museum shapes its identity. Especially in modern and contemporary art, a continuous and strategically growing collection becomes the showcase of our time. It reflects who and where we are now and tells future generations about us.
Photographer Alec Soth studies the habits and rituals of ordinary Americans, finding moments of self-absorption and vulnerability that are specific to the people he photographs, yet somehow common to human experience. Taking cues from the Depression-era documentary projects of the 1930s, Soth set out to create a state-by-state record of American life in the early twenty-first century. Photographed over the course of a 2013 road trip, Colorado Dispatch presents the core of Soth’s work from the Centennial State.
In Bloom explores the development of nineteenth-century French floral still-life painting, and features about 60 paintings by Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Vincent Van Gogh, and others.
Castiglione: Lost Genius features 90 of the finest examples of drawings, etchings, and monotypes of the master Genoese draftsman, painter, and printmaker Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione. A forgotten master from the Italian baroque, Castiglione was a self-proclaimed genius, whose artworks entered the Royal Collection in 1762. The exhibition explores Castiglione’s mastery of art and how he produced brilliant works despite his turbulent private life that prevented him from becoming more widely known.
Fritz Scholder once vowed never to paint Indians. He claimed he was not an American Indian artist, but he was. He claimed his art was not political, but it polarized the art world. For every position he took, he also explored the opposite perspective
Super Indian: Fritz Scholder, 1967–1980, is a groundbreaking exhibition of more than 40 rarely seen, monumental paintings and lithographs by the renowned twentieth-century artist. It is the first to explore how Scholder blended figurative and pop art influences to create colorful, compelling, and revolutionary images.
