Modernism in the American Galleries: The Poynor Collection

Exhibitions as Curator

Birmingham Museum of Art
Birmingham, Alabama
November 2018 – August 2019

Two installations from a major promised gift to the institution in celebration of the donor and the expanding scope of the American collection. These rotations illustrate how American artists used medium specificity and abstraction at mid-century to transition from stylization in the early-twentieth century to the pluralism of subjects and materials in twenty-first century art.
