Hold Me Closer/Exhibit

  • Overview

    Hold Me Closer will showcase prints and photographs from the permanent collection that explore the theme of intimacy in its myriad forms, including romantic, platonic, and familial.

    Coming off the heels of years of social distancing and isolation, this exhibition will address different emotional tones associated with close, interpersonal contact, from jubilant and saccharine, to bittersweet, melancholic, or unsettling. The show will feature work from the mid-nineteenth century through to the present by Mary Cassatt, Elizabeth Catlett, Larry Fink, Käthe Kollwitz, Danny Lyon, Robert Mapplethorpe, Edvard Munch, Deana Lawson, and many others.
