New exhibition starts at Benton Museum
The Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College and Pitzer College Art Galleries exhibition “Sadie Barnette: Legacy and Legend,” opened yesterday and will be up through December 19.
It is the most ambitious exhibition to date of the California artist Ms. Barnette. The two-venue presentation of the artist’s recent work brings together her drawings, installations, and photographs that explore intimate family narratives within global discourses on race and power.
The exhibition was curated by Benton Senior Curator Rebecca McGrew and Pitzer Director Ciara Ennis. It is the third collaboration between the Benton and the Pitzer College Art Galleries, and the 54th exhibition in the Benton’s Project Series. The Benton will publish the first major catalogue on the artist’s work to accompany the exhibition.
The exhibition and publication are supported in part by a generous grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, with additional support from the Pasadena Art Alliance.
The Benton is open for appointment viewing Tuesdays through Saturdays. To arrange a visit to the Pitzer College Art Galleries, email Christopher_Michno@pitzer.edu.
