BetweenHeavenandHell

Opening March 12, 2017, Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera will be the most comprehensive presentation ever dedicated to the artist’s drawings—and the first major monographic exhibition organized on the artist in the United States in the last 25 years.

http://www.meadowsmuseumdallas.org/about_Ribera_Drawings.htm

47 of Ribera’s drawings (nearly a third of the artist’s surviving output), 12 prints, 11 paintings, and one relief sculpture will be on display, demonstrating the technical skill and extraordinary originality of this Golden Age master. Co-organized with the Museo Nacional del Prado, the exhibition marks the publication of the first catalogue raisonné of the artist’s drawings, published jointly by the Meadows Museum, the Museo Nacional del Prado, and Fundación Focus. The Meadows Museum is the only U.S. venue for this exhibition.

Meadows Lecture Series: Reflecting on Ribera: Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700

meadowslectureseries
LUIS MARTÍN LECTURE SERIES IN THE HUMANITIES

Reflecting on Ribera:
Art and Culture in Spain and Spanish Naples, 1600-1700
Four Fridays, February 3 – March 3, 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Adam Jasienski, assistant professor of art history, SMU

This lecture series investigates the world and work of Spanish-born artist Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), the subject of the forthcoming exhibition  Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera

meadowslectureseries2(opening March 12). A careful analysis of specific artworks by Ribera and his contemporaries will situate the artist within the broader context of the global Iberian empire, in which his chosen hometown of Naples played an integral role. Some of the themes examined will include Ribera’s confrontation with the legacies of Caravaggio and Domenichino, his penchant for violent scenes of martyrdom and suffering, the appeal of his stark realism, and his creation of images that were both effective religious objects and cutting-edge contemporary artworks. Coffee and pastries served in the Founders Room before each lecture at 10 a.m.

 

Advance registration required. $50 for the 4-part series; free for Museum members, SMU staff, faculty and students. To register, please call 214.768.8587.

Zurbarán Masterworks at the Meadows Museum in 2017

MeadowsMuseumlogoThe Meadows Museum at SMU announces a touring exhibition of life-size paintings by the Spanish Golden Age master Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664), on loan from Auckland Castle in England.

Proposed by the Meadows—in collaboration with The Frick Collection, the Kimbell Art Museum, and the Auckland Castle Trust—the project includes an analysis of the paintings at the Kimbell’s noted conservation lab, as well as a scholarly publication about the unique history of this series, the most significant public collection of the artist’s work outside of Spain. The exhibition marks the first time these works will travel to the United States, and will premiere at the Meadows in September 2017, followed by a presentation at The Frick Collection beginning in January 2018.

September 17, 2017 – January 7, 2018

CURRENT EXHIBITS
dalisurrealistsmu
Salvador Dalí: An Early Surrealist Masterpiece
Through June 19

The 1930s were one of the most creatively fruitful decades of Salvador Dalí’s career. L’homme poisson (The Fish Man) shows both his tremendous imagination as well as his technical adroitness, and offers a revealing glimpse into the artist’s inner psyche. After an auspicious beginning as part of the first exhibition of surrealist works held in the U.S., in 1931, the painting has remained out of the public domain for much of its existence. This exhibition celebrates the Meadows’ acquisition of L’homme poisson-the first painting by Dalí to enter the collection of a Texas museum-and presents a renewed look at this early masterpiece within the artist’s oeuvre of surrealism. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque
February 14 – June 5

Between Paris and Texas: Marie Cronin, Portraitist of the Belle Époque is the first monographic exhibition of Cronin’s (1867-1951) art and will feature a focused selection of her paintings, including works shown in the salons of Paris, as well as official portraits of Texas statesmen that hang at the Texas State Capitol, such as Alfonso Steele (1817-1911), the last survivor of the Battle of San Jacinto. A Texas-raised artist, Cronin studied with Claudio Castelucho (Spanish, 1870-1927) in Paris during the first decade of the twentieth century. Following her return from Europe, Cronin would continue her artistic career back in Texas while also carrying out the exigencies of a family in the business of expanding railroad operations across the state. Learn More

This exhibition has been organized by the Meadows Museum, and is funded by a generous gift from The Meadows Foundation.

 

Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner
February 14 – June 5

This exhibition will present the work of two pioneering artists working and teaching in Texas in the 1940s and 1950s, Carlotta Corpron (1901-1988) and Janet Turner (1914-1988). Corpron, working in photography, and Turner, working in painting and printmaking, both taught art education at Texas universities and came into their own maturity of style during the middle of the twentieth century. Process and Innovation: Carlotta Corpron and Janet Turner explores the work of both artists made during this period of consummate experimentation. This exhibition draws entirely from holdings within the Dallas area, including Bywaters Special Collections of SMU, which holds an impressive collection of art by both Turner and Corpron. Learn More

Alba Collection Symposium Dec. 4

alba symposium

Alba Collection Symposium Dec. 4

Join us for a public symposium at the Meadows Museum that will bring together established and emerging scholars for discussion and debate on a selection of masterpieces from the collection of the Alba family.
The morning session will be devoted to three keynote lectures that will narrate a story of the life and afterlife of the Alba collection, and raise broader questions about parallel collections throughout Europe. The first lecture will examine the dispersal of the Alba collection in the nineteenth century, the second will investigate the political appropriation of the collection during the Spanish Civil War, and the third will address conservation issues pertaining to specific objects. The afternoon session will take place in the exhibition galleries, where eight speakers will present “object biographies,” unfolding the stories of individual works on view in the exhibition. A break for lunch will follow the morning session, and the symposium will close with a reception for attendees.
This symposium is co-organized by the Meadows Museum and the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History at The University of Texas at Dallas.

» Read More

 http://www.smu.edu/Meadows/NewsAndEvents/News/2015/151026-LoremIpsumExhibitConceived as a collaborative curatorial experiment, Lorem Ipsum will be an ongoing dialogue among a group of curators selected from various backgrounds (academia, non-profit, commercial gallery, museum); differing locations; and with interests and experiences in multiple creative ventures, who will function as representatives of the breadth of contemporary curatorial practice. During the course of the exhibition the curators will play a game: taking turns reworking and recontextualizing a predetermined selection of art objects with the purpose of creating a running commentary about what it is to be a curator at this point in time.

Participating curators include Danielle Avram Morgan, Pollock Curatorial Fellow, SMU; Benjamin Lima, Assistant Professor, Art History, The University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington, TX; Cameron Shaw, Executive Director and Founding Editor, Pelican Bomb, New Orleans, LA; and Amanda Brinkman, Creative and Operations Director, Pelican Bomb, New Orleans, LA.

Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting

September 11, 2015–January 3, 2016

For more than 500 years, the Alba family has formed part of the most important aristocratic lineages in Europe. In celebration of the Meadows Museum’s 50th anniversary, they are graciously allowing more than 130 works from their private collection to leave Spain for the very first time. Treasures from the House of Alba: 500 Years of Art and Collecting presents paintings and decorative arts drawn from three of the family’s most spectacular palaces in Madrid, Seville, and Salamanca, including works by Titian, Goya, Rubens, Rembrandt, Ingres, Renoir, and many more.

Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Invention at the Meadows

goyameadows

Meadows Museum:
“Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Invention”

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) produced almost 300 etchings and lithographs that reveal his personal vision, tireless invention and enthusiasm for technical experimentation. Goya: A Lifetime of Graphic Invention presents Goya’s printed oeuvre as an integral – indeed defining – component of his life and career and invites a reconsideration of the artist’s paintings within the Meadows Museum’s collection. Visitors will have the rare opportunity to view complete 1st-edition sets of his four major print series together, Los Caprichos (1799), Los Desastres de la Guerra (1810-19), La Tauromaquia(1816) and Los Disparates (1816-23).
