Theoretically, the principles of an artistic avant-garde (from the French, “vanguard” or “advance guard”, literally “fore-guard”) are characterized primarily by artists who have created works that employed radical, experimental, and, or unorthodox methods and materials. The exhibition explores the art of the Avant-Garde with a particular emphasis on the art object as a form of cultural, artistic, and social expression. The exhibition will also explore the historic and artistic constructs of modernity with the gradual development of shifts in patterns of patronage, the role of the Academy, the system of art instruction, the position of the artist in society, the artist’s attitude toward artistic means and issues—toward subject matter, expression, literary content, attitude toward color and use thereof, and the purpose of a work of art. The exhibition includes the works of Constantin Brancusi, George Braque, Mary Cassatt; Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Marion Greenwood, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Käthe Kollwitz, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Marie Laurencin, Roy Lichtenstein, Kazimir Malevich, Edouard Manet, Franz Marc, Alice Neel, Louise Nevelson, Pablo Picasso, José Clemente Orozco, Rolph Scarlett, David Alfaro Siqueiros, John Sloan, Raphael Soyer, James McNeill Whistler, and many more……               Curator: Ann H. Bittl
