02/12/2017 - Art of the 20th Century
The first decades of the 20th Century witnessed a schism in the arts as painters and sculptors in Europe and the Americas began to break with academic traditions. Rallying under the banner of expressive freedom and an independence from established institutions, these artists began to explore new social realities, and the even more radical concept of a purely abstract art. Adding to this transatlantic transmission of ideas was an unprecedented internationalism. A new era of travel and communication would, for example, lead Mexican modernist Diego Rivera to Paris. Conversely, wars, suffering and the dream of a new life led even more European artists to emigrate to the United States.

Tracing a trajectory through a century of art, from the School of Paris to Surrealism and Pop, the paintings and sculptures on view do not present a traditional survey divided by national schools. Instead, this display combines artists from Europe, the United States and Latin America to highlight the international aspects of modernism. In so doing, the installation showcases the special strengths of the museum's collection of modern and contemporary art together with a select group of loans.

Adults - $15
Members - Free
Youth, 17 and under* - Free
College Students, full time with ID - $8

02/09/2017 - African American Art 'Impressions'
San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery presents "Impressions: African American artists and their connection to African Art," an exhibition featuring the works of Andrea Chung, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle and Robert Pruitt as well as select pieces from the San Diego Mesa College African Art collection. Chung, Hinkle and Pruitt create work that represents the black body and inscribes it with meaning through the use of historical im, references to African art and symbolism.

Their work establishes a dialogue that both deconstructs and demystifies gender and race. The artifacts in the African Art collection, some dating as far back as the 16th century, enter into conversation with the works of these contemporary artists and in doing so they reassert their cultural and artistic influence on African American art. Together, this visual ensemble from the past and the present both illuminates and offers insights into the African American experience.

Admission/Cost: FREE

Location:
San Diego Mesa College
Art Gallery D101

Ongoing February 9 to March 1
