walkerartcenter In 1966, residents of the Drop City artist commune created 'The Ultimate Painting.' While the original was lost, an interactive recreation lives inside the #HippieModernism exhibition, which houses the painting inside a geodesic dome and uses strobe lights to reveal unique compositions. 5d

  •   itssatpreet These are always so shocking. Oh, art world. I love ya, but you're so disappointing. I would also be super interested to see stats about for artists of color and women of color. 3w
  •   daraymanning just out of curiosity do they have anything on trans artists? they seemed kinda unaware about anything regarding them or how to be sensitive to those issues when they came to visit my school but who knows maybe they'll surprise me. 3w
  •   shane_neat The institutions of art are a reflection of our segregated society and the elite who use those institutions to push their vacuous acquisitions. Guerrilla girls should stay clear of the museum model and stay independent. 3w

walkerartcenter "This is my idea of history, traveling in a straight line like my horizontals. I catch a piece of it, but it's been going forever. It's part of a story that's been going on, still is going on, and always will be going on." —Jack Whitten, 1974. | #JackWhitten, "Chinese Sincerity," 1974. #partsofpaintings #abstract 2mon

walkerartcenter #EdRuscha was born #OnThisDay in 1937. Here's a detail of his painting, "Standard Station, Amarillo, Texas," 1963, which was recently on view in #InternationalPop. Born in Omaha, Nebraska and raised in Oklahoma City, Ruscha moved to Los Angeles in 1956 to study commercial art. Though he soon abandoned this profession for painting, the techniques he learned for layout, lettering, and illustration influenced his work. #partsofpaintings #happybirthday #hbd @hoodmuseum 2mon

walkerartcenter The man in this #AndreaBüttner woodcut is half of a kissing couple from a #MarcChagall painting in the collection of @themuseumofmodernart. Here we show a detail of the man's head—in the full view he floats alone. The woman is absent in Büttner's version. We can imagine Chagall's woman next to him (or another figure, perhaps?) | detail of Andrea Büttner, "Flying Man," 2015. #woodcut #print #Chagall 2mon

walkerartcenter Felix Gonzalez-Torres was known for poignant statements in love and mortality, typically created using mundane materials and a minimalist aesthetic. His works often addressed his relationship with his longtime partner, Ross Laycock, who died of AIDS in 1991. In 1992, the artist began his light strand series. Gonzalez-Torres left installation decisions up to owners of the light strands, stipulating only that the bulbs be replaced as soon as they burned out. This representation of life, death, and renewal is signature to many of his works, particularly after his own diagnosis with HIV in the mid-1990s. | "Untitled (Last Light)," 1993 #felixgonzaleztorres #worldAIDSday 2mon
