  1. All Flowers in Bloom: Porcelains from China’s Last Dynasty

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

    All Flowers in Bloom explores the new heights of artistry and technical skill that porcelain makers were able to achieve during China’s Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911). Qing artists explored new techniques and innovations even as they revered the shapes and decoration of ancient Chinese bronzes. The porcelain on display here showcases the dramatically expanded color range of the era - including brilliant cherry red, pinkish grey, and luminous deep blue - as well as a new emphasis on the simple elegance of monochrome.

  2. Growing the Collection: Drawings and Collage, 1960 to Now

    2400 3rd Ave S

    How does a museum grow with the times, address the wrongs of the past, and begin to reflect the community it serves? The works of art in these galleries are all recent additions to the collection, or are promised gifts from community members. Together, they represent Mia’s ongoing initiatives to expand and broaden its collection of postwar and contemporary drawings and collages to better represent the remarkable diversity of artistic achievement in the United States and elsewhere.

    Mia is acquiring important works on paper by leading artists whose work is either absent or underrepresented in the museum’s collection. And we are increasing the number of artworks in the collection by leading African American, Latinx, and women artists, whose work has faced discrimination within the predominantly white, male, Eurocentric view of art history. Resetting our collecting strategy is one way Mia can stay true to its mission of enriching the community by collecting, preserving, and exhibiting outstanding works of art.

  3. Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists

    2400 3rd Ave S

    Presented by:
    Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community

    Women have long been the creative force behind Native American art. Presented in close cooperation with top Native women artists and scholars, this first major exhibition of artwork by Native women celebrates the achievements of over 115 artists from the United States and Canada spanning over 1,000 years. Their triumphs - from pottery, textiles, and painting, to photographic portraits, to a gleaming El Camino - show astonishing innovation and technical mastery.

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

    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.

    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.

  6. Sieng Lee: Siv Yiv and His Wooden Horses

    Toll Free: (888) 642-2787

    For his MAEP exhibition, Sieng Lee will collaborate with Wa Leng Lee, a renowned shaman, and his community to create an installation that reflects a modern-day retelling of Siv Yiv, the first Hmong shaman. At the crux of his exhibition, Lee asks what people give up in order to assimilate into American culture.

    Lee holds a BS from Herzing University, Madison, and an MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. He is a recipient of the 2015 Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists, Minnesota States Arts Board. He was the lead exhibit designer of "We Are Hmong Minnesota," at the Minnesota History Center, St. Paul.

    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.
