Tseng Kwong Chi
Performing for the Camera
August 18- December 13, 2015
The first major museum retrospective of the work of Tseng Kwong Chi, a photographer with an eye for the theatrical and a well-connected chronicler of the '80s art-and-club scene in New York City. This exhibition integrates his best-known works—collaborations with Keith Haring and his droll East Meets West and Expeditionary photographic series—with a detailed survey of other, less-exhibited pieces. Tseng died in 1990 at the age of 39, and his work has proven to be not only enduring but highly influential.
Saints and Dragons
Icons from Byzantium to Russia
October 1, 2015 – Jan 10, 2016
The Chrysler presents more than 120 works of religious, historical, and artistic importance—rare icons and extraordinary artifacts from The British Museum in London and the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Mass. The exhibition marks the first time that The British Museum has loaned two of its most spectacular icons to any American museum - Saint John the Baptist (Constantinople, ca. 1300) and the famous Saint George and the Dragon (also known as The Black George, (Pskov, Russia, late-14th century).
Tribute to Jeff Harrison
Oct. 1, 2015, to Jan. 10, 2016
Serial Thrillers highlights nine Old Master print sets, encompassing stories drawn from the Old Testament, Louis XV's Versailles, and the storm-tossed voyages of Dutch sailing ships. The exhibition includes works by Albrecht Durer and Andrea Andreani.
Georgia O'Keeffe: A Place of Her Own
Oct. 21, 2015, to Jan. 3, 2016
The Chrysler’s series of joint exhibitions with the National Gallery of Art concludes with a featured look at the unique and beautiful work of Georgia O'Keeffe. O'Keeffe's brilliant career is outlined through works spanning six decades. Come see how the seductive curves and colors of her famous Jack-in-the-Pulpit flower series from 1930 evolved into hauntingly austere paintings like the Chrysler's massive 1954 work Black Door with Red.
