Tesoro; Pepe Mar’s Love Letter to the Frost

What Is Left Unspoken, Love

Thru Sun 08/14/2022

This exhibition features contemporary artworks from 1987 to 2021 that address the different ways the most important thing in life—love—is expressed.

Organized during a time when cynicism often seems to triumph over hope, this exhibition will examine love as a profound subject of critical commentary from time immemorial yet with a persistently elusive definition. As poet and painter Etel Adnan wrote, love is “not to be described, it is to be lived.”

"Love" will feature more than 75 works in a variety of media by more than 35 international artists based in North America, Europe and Asia such as Rina Banerjee, Jeffrey Gibson, Tomashi Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Kerry James Marshall, Magnus Plessen, RongRong and inri, and Carrie Mae Weems.
