Before the arrival of the Spanish in 1532, Peru had seen the rise and fall of numerous cultures and artistic styles, not just those of the Inca Empire, for which it is so well known. Because these civilizations lacked written records, we gain our understanding of their histories and societies through their art and archaeology. Focusing primarily on ceramics from cultures before the time of the Inca, this installation encourages visitors to explore less familiar arts and traditions.

Modern Sculptors in Indiana
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Steinmetz Kellett Gallery, first floor

This installation features the work of artists Robert Laurent, David Smith, George Rickey, David Hayes, Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and (from October onwards) William Wiley, all of whom have Indiana connections. This installation is presented in conjunction with the Indiana State Bicentennial and has been endorsed as an official Bicentennial Legacy Project.

A Step in Time Across the Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng
March 11 to May 7, 2017
Special Exhibitions Gallery, first floor
This Spring, The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University will present A Step in Time Across the Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng, the artist’s first solo museum presentation. Featuring large-scale conceptual photography, video, and installation work, including two new series of works that have never before been shown, the exhibition will shed light on traditional Chinese culture and the immigrant experience. Through the use of iconic Chinese symbols, artifacts, and Western memorabilia—such as porcelain figures, rice bowls, Chinese postal stamps, and chopsticks—juxtaposed with distinctly American imagery, such as Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s soup cans, the exhibition explores what it means to be Chinese in an increasingly multicultural and trans-national world, through the lens of diaspora identity.
Abstract Painting in Europe, 1949-1968
March 11 to May 7, 2017
Judi and Milt Stewart Hexagon Gallery, first floor
This exhibition will focus on works by European abstract artists from the post World War II period of 1949-1968, taken from the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s permanent collection. Artists from Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Hungary, and Poland will be on view. This exhibition shines a light on an interesting area of the museum’s collection, surveying what abstract artists in Europe were doing during the tumultuous period between the division of Germany into East and West in 1949, and the civil and political unrest of the 1960s.
