  1. A Weakness for French Prints: The Harry Drake Collection

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000
    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    Stroll the streets of Paris and explore the French countryside in a time before cars clogged the lanes and boulevards. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, printmakers found inspiration along riverbanks, in narrow alleyways, and down back roads. They observed the lives of the haves and the have-nots. They recorded celebration and desperation.

  2. Abstract Prints by Hagiwara Hideo

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000
    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    Originally a painter trained in oil, Hagiwara Hideo (1913–2007) became ill with tuberculosis and turned to printmaking in 1954. From the start his prints were of an abstract nature, and for 50 years he was a constant innovator in his choice of motifs, style, and technique. This first major U.S. retrospective exhibition of Hagiwara's work showcases his enormous versatility. More than 30 prints span his early work of the 1950s to the Greek Mythology series in 1965, and from his celebrated series of novel views of Mount Fuji in the 1980s and 1990s to his enormously laborious prints of the Face, Memory, and Mandala series.

  3. Artists Reflect: Contemporary Views on the American War

    2400 3rd Ave S

    This exhibition is free for active military and veterans. Please call 612.870.3000 to reserve.

    Mia's companion exhibition to "Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965-1975" features drawings, textiles, video, photography, and installations made by artists from the Southeast Asian diaspora who have been deeply engaged with the impact and legacy of the American War in Vietnam. The artists reflect on migration, memory, the effect of violence on the landscape and on communities, healing, and trauma.

    The Twin Cities is home to a large Southeast Asian population, many of whom arrived in the wake of the war. This contemporary installation and its related programming will present a wide range of voices and stories about the war and its impact. Featured artists include two based in Minnesota: Pao Houa Her and Teo Nguyen.

  4. Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965-1975

    2400 3rd Ave S

    How do artists respond to war? What makes effective protest art? Does art change in times of crisis?

    Organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, "Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965­–1975" shows the innovative ways artists replied, often in the streets and other public venues. The exhibition presents nearly 100 works by 58 of the period's most visionary, provocative artists. The war's escalation coincided with the rise of feminism and the Black Arts Movement, broadening the artists' critique. Mia's installation also spotlights protest exhibitions organized in the wake of violence against demonstrators during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

  5. Graciela Iturbide's Mexico

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000
    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    Graciela Iturbide is one of Latin America's most influential photographers. Since the late 1970s, her vivid photographs have captured everyday life in Mexico, creating a powerful visual record of its diverse cultures, rituals, and religions, especially those of indigenous people. Presenting 125 photographs drawn from over four decades, this groundbreaking career survey explores the complexity of contemporary Mexican society through Iturbide's striking photographs of its landscapes and people.

  6. Jonathan Herrera Soto: In Between / Underneath (Entre / Por Debajo)

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000
    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    Jonathan Herrera Soto will create a new rendition of his installation "In Between / Underneath (Entre / Por Debajo)." The work will depict recently murdered and missing Mexican journalists, highlighting the record number of journalists killed. In exploring our relationship with complicated and often distant systems of state-sponsored violence, the exhibition invites audiences to interact with the faces representing the politically dispossessed - people who have disappeared, are incarcerated, or were executed.

    Herrera Soto graduated with a BFA from Minneapolis College in Art and Design in 2017. He has exhibited at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, in St. Paul; the Duluth Art Institute; the Soap Factory, in Minneapolis; and the Annex Gallery, in Chicago. Herrera has participated in various residencies and fellowships including at Spudnik Press, the Highpoint Center for Printmaking, and the Vermont Studio Center. He is a recipient of the 2018 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant.

  7. Living Clay: Artists Respond to Nature

    From the golden age of Japanese ceramics at the turn of the 17th century to the avant-garde movements in the postwar era and up to the present day, Japanese ceramicists have sought inspiration in the natural world. This exhibition highlights the work of more than a dozen living Japanese women clay artists whose primarily nonfunctional works represent diverse evocations of or responses to the natural world. Organized in thematic groupings, such as micronature, aquatics, and flora, the exhibition presents recent ceramic works inspired by everything from cells and mold spores to snails and leaves in conversation with contemporary works in other media.

  8. MAEP: Alyssa Baguss

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000
    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    Alyssa Baguss will construct three distinct artworks that explore how we experience the outdoors as mediated technology. This exhibition will consider nature as scenery, our persistent longing to be elsewhere, and our perception of place through secondary experiences.

    Baguss’s practice explores mediated natural environments through the drawing processes. She is a 2015 and 2017 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant and the recipient of the 2017/18 Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists. Her work has been exhibited at the Rochester Art Center, Minnesota Center for the Book Arts, and Minnesota Museum of American Art.

  9. Mapping Black Identities

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000
    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    Taking inspiration from Mia's recent acquisition of Frank Bowling's map painting False Start (1970), "Mapping Black Identities" challenges the notion of Black identity as monolithic. Championing the diverse experiences of artists from America, Africa, and the diaspora, this exhibition seeks to amplify underrepresented voices and create connections around the concept of Blackness in contemporary art across time and place.

    Mapping is a colonial practice tied to painful histories of conquest and domination. Here, mapping functions as a powerful way to reclaim spaces - such as the museum - that have traditionally excluded or overlooked work by Black artists.

  10. Speculative Bodies

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404

    Today we live multiple lives both online and in real life, with elastic identities that are seemingly boundless, open to fluid representation and constant reinterpretation via technology. Can the same be said of our physical bodies? Despite technology’s ever-quickening pace, we are still inextricably bound to the flesh-and-blood of the human body that we as a species have inhabited for thousands of years.

    The works presented in this exhibition broadly question how technology has reimagined the physical body - as avatar, prosthesis, shell, surrogate, or otherwise - as well as its ongoing ramifications for understanding the evolving human condition.

  11. Strong Women, Full of Love: The Photography of Meadow Muska

    2400 3rd Ave S
    Minneapolis, MN 55404
    Call: (612) 870-3000

    This exhibition is the first to present the work of documentary photographer Carolyn "Meadow" Muska. Born and raised in Minnesota, Meadow came out as a lesbian at age 20. After earning a BFA at Ohio University, she used photography to record "beautiful, strong women, full of love and joy." In an era of persistent legal and cultural prejudice against LGBTQ individuals, documenting her community was a radical act. Because her photographs could have exposed her subjects to significant risks, including the loss of employment, child custody, or housing, she developed her own film in a basement darkroom for decades. The extraordinary photographic record she produced as a part of the "women's land" movement in both Minnesota and Oregon, as well as her work as a labor and women's rights activist, illuminates a new and vital chapter in American history.

  12. Turkish Rugs on Tudor Walls: 16th-Century Trade between England and the Islamic World

    Five hundred years ago, the Islamic world ruled much of North Africa, Persia, and Eastern Europe. Protestant Christian England, newly estranged from Catholic Europe, forged lucrative trade, diplomatic, and cultural relations with these Muslim global powers. By the late 1500s, few prosperous English homes lacked a Turkey carpet, silks, ceramics, or tapestries. These goods, as well as domestically produced versions of them, later found their way into English daily life. Yet, as much as the English admired the sumptuous wares, the tiny, isolated island nation wrestled over doing business with a people it deemed "heathen." This exhibition examines that fundamental attraction and ambivalence.
