Fracture: Cubism & After

Submitted by Camilla Sterne on Fri, 01/23/2015 - 4:25pm

The discipline of Cubism rejected traditional concepts, like the idea that art should imitate nature. Instead, the cubists emphasized the two-dimensionality of the canvas, splitting and reassembling their images into "little cubes.” Fracture features 14 cubist paintings, including “Nature Morte,” a 1914 work by Pablo Picasso and Roy Lichtenstein’s 1976 painting “The Violin.” Tue-Thu 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Fri 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sat-Sun 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
