This event has ended.

The Vilcek Foundation will open its new headquarters with its inaugural exhibition, Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs.

Featuring works from the Vilcek Foundation’s American Modernism Collection, alongside loans from John Crawford, one of the artist’s sons, Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs presents an important but lesser-known aspect of the modernist painter’s oeuvre.

The exhibition examines the confluence of two seemingly disparate series completed later in Crawford’s life: Torn Signs, inspired by ragged advertisements on the streets of New York, and Semana Santa, which depicts observers of Holy Week in Seville, Spain, and the ways in which they are connected through the artist’s visual memory, working method, and sense of spatial organization.
