“Duets: Art in Conversation” Exhibition

Hirschl & Adler

poster for “Duets: Art in Conversation” Exhibition

This event has ended.

An exhibition of approximately fifty paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture from the eighteenth-century to the present. Duets offers a fresh perspective by juxtaposing traditional eighteenth and nineteenth-century works with modern and contemporary art. Through pairing art works that relate in form, subject, or spirit we encourage the viewer to contemplate the connections between different generations of artists, the evolution of artistic style, and aesthetic intent. The core of Duets lies in the continuous conversation between works of art across time. Duets eliminates the restraints of chronology and initiates a dialogue that will challenge the viewer to analyze works of art through an unconventional lens.
