Chaos and Awe:
Painting for the 21st Century

On View

November 16, 2018 — April 28, 2019

Located in

First Floor, Special Exhibitions Gallery

Chaos and Awe: Painting for the 21st Century is a sweeping survey of contemporary art from around the world that weaves together images of the physical world, memories, emotions, and the virtual world. Works from thirty-six international artists dramatically suggest the powerful, exciting, and destabilizing effects of 21st-century forces such as globalism, mass migration, radical ideologies, and the rapid expansion of technology.

Chaos and Awe: Painting for the 21st Century was organized by the Frist Art Museum, Nashville, Tennessee. This exhibition is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Tennessee Arts Commission, and Metro Nashville Arts Commission.
