Exhibitions Here and There

✭ The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., is presenting through January 2, 2017, "Intersections: Photographs and Videos from the National Gallery of Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art". On view are highlights from the two merged collections by artists from the 1840s to the present. The show is arranged thematically (movement, sequence, narrative, studio, and identity) to reflect the collections' connections as established in the work of Eadweard Muybridge and Alfred Stieglitz.

✭ Work by sculptor Martin Puryear, one of my favorite artists, is on view through September 5 at Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. Organized by Art Institute of Chicago, where it was presented earlier this year, the exhibition, "Martin Puryear: Multiple Dimensions", includes work being shown for the first time, as well as artwork (including prints) and materials related to Puryear's Bearing Witness (1994) and Vessel (1997-2002), two local monumental sculptures. The latter is intended for the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture, which is to open this fall. The former is at a General Services Administration building at Federal Triangle in the District. 

Of the 72 objects in the show, 14 are sculptures and 13 are from SAAM's collection. Approximately half are on loan from the artist. See the online gallery.

A catalogue by Mark Pascale (see image below), featuring 140 color illustrations, accompanies the exhibition. The last public program related to the exhibition is August 4, 5:30 p.m.; it includes a gallery talk and walk.
