February Rotation: Reuniting—While much of art history concerns itself with exceptional or singular pieces, many objects in museum collections were manufactured as pairs, multiples, and even serially produced artworks. The objects in this exhibit have been reunited after following parallel or sometimes entirely divergent paths. Their trajectories have brought them back together here after spending decades apart.
On view February 2–28. Curator’s Tours: February 5 and 19, 2016 | 3 p.m.
