Alex Katz: A Singular Vision

October 29, 2015 - May 1, 2016

The Paul J. Schupf Wing for the Works of Alex Katz

This installation features highlights from the museum’s permanent collection, including several recent acquisitions on view for the first time. Many of the artworks on display in A Singular Vision touch upon themes of pairing, doubling, and repetition. In some cases, these are formal devices, with Katz coupling figures off or depicting a subject multiple times within a single canvas. Elsewhere this entails his return to particular models or motifs over the course of his career.
