Cover for Angela Davis
Angela Davis
Seize the Time
In 1969, Angela Davis, a twenty-six-year-old black activist, was fired from her teaching position at UCLA, accused of involvement in a shootout that resulted in the deaths of four men, put on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, and spent several months as a fugitive. In October, she was arrested in New York and returned to California to stand trial. Her image became the focus and the tool of an unprecedented international effort to free an incarcerated black woman. Her trial and acquittal, in 1972, made her a lightning rod for fears and hopes on the right and left about revolutionary change and she has remained an active agent of change in the years since.

Textures: The History and Art of Black Hair
Textures synthesizes research in history, fashion, art, and visual culture to reassess the “hair story” of peoples of African descent. Long a fraught topic for African Americans and others in the diaspora, Black hair is here addressed by artists, barbers, and activists in both its historical perceptions and its ramifications for self and society today. Combs, products, and implements from the collection of hair pioneer Willie Morrow are paired here with masterworks from artists including James Van Der Zee, Sonya Clark, Lorna Simpson, Mary Sibande and Zanele Muholi. Exploring topics such as the preferential treatment of straight hair, the social hierarchies of skin, and the power and politics of display, Textures is a landmark exploration of Black hair and its important, complicated place in the history of African American life and culture. The exhibition is organized by the KSU Museum with co-curators, Joseph L. Underwood, assistant professor of art history at KSU and Tameka Ellington, associate professor at the Fashion School at KSU.

Invisibilia
"I am interested in the instant and the processes that occur so that an image can become consolidated, or not, in memory" -Oscar Muñoz, 2011 Oscar Muñoz: Invisibilia is the first retrospective of this Colombian artist’s work in the United States. Beginning with his early charcoal drawings from the late 1970s, the exhibition will include approximately 40 exemplary works from his most evocative series created between then and the present day. Since the late 1980s, Muñoz has sought to reinvent the medium of photography, creating hybrid works that splice photographic processes with drawing, painting, printmaking, installation, video, and sculpture, as well as interactive works. He turns photographic processes inside out to underscore the intrinsic fragility and transient nature of the image. And he also highlights how the act of opening the aperture to light instantaneously transforms the present into the past, life into memory: “The photograph, as we all know, becomes memory at the moment when it not only receives the light rays from the exterior, but is also capable of fixing them. That is the moment when a photograph turns into the past.” This project is long overdue. It seeks to elucidate the philosophies and the poetics underlying this seminal artist’s body of work, as well as the unstable imagery he has created, which, nevertheless, becomes indelible in our imaginations.

Mind Over Matter: Zen in Medieval Japan
This exhibition showcases the breadth of the museum’s medieval Zen collections, highlighting rare and striking works from Japan and China to illustrate the visual, spiritual, and philosophical power of Zen. Rooted in the culture of medieval Japan, the lessons of Zen have become an important part of contemporary American life, as applicable today as they were in premodern times. Monastic Zen painting in medieval Japan (ca. 1200–1600) is one of the great artistic traditions of East Asia and of the world. The abbreviated, seemingly impromptu paintings in monochrome ink have influenced artists and enthusiasts for centuries. Many of the most accomplished artists of this era—Mokuan, Ryozen, Shubun, Sesshu, Sesson, and many others—were Zen monks credited by later generations as the creators of a unique and remarkable legacy of ink painting. Indeed, Zen monk-painters inspired a number of the most important professional painting lineages of Japan’s early modern period (ca. 1600–1868) and formed a thematic backbone of Japanese art and cultural identity in modern times.

Art for No One
1933–1945
Between 1933 and 1945, the National Socialist regime controlled artistic work in Germany. Partic­u­larly artists who were perse­cuted based on their reli­gion, descent, or polit­ical views fled into exile due to threats from the govern­ment. But what happened to the artists who remained in the country? Isola­tion, lack of an audi­ence, and limited exchange impacted the creativity of the indi­vid­uals who were deprived of a basis for work and life under National Socialism. Their situ­a­tion is often described in a gener­al­ized way as “ostracism” or “inner emigra­tion.” In light of the multi­lay­ered and diver­gent personal circum­stances, however, these terms fall short of the mark.

Käthe Kollwitz
The Oeuvre behind the Masterpieces
Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945), the most important female artist of classical Modernism in Germany, is unmatched in her works for the emphatic representation of war, poverty and death, but also of love, security and the struggle for peace. Her drawings, prints and sculptures brought her worldwide renown even during her lifetime. From Spring 2022, a new monograph will give an overview of her entire artistic work. The catalogue will feature over 200 illustrations, arranged by topic, and provide a representative selection from the collection of the Käthe Kollwitz Museum in Cologne. The Cologne Kollwitz Collection has the largest stock of drawings, prints and sculptures worldwide and is a dedicated ambassador for the artist’s work. This new standard reference with text contributions by the museum’s art historians will be published in a German and English edition. The presentation of the catalogue will be accompanied by a special exhibition at the Käthe Kollwitz Museum Köln which will – in line with the catalogue – present the topic areas of her work. It is not just her artistic skill that still fascinates people from around the world, but also the timeless emotional clout of her work. This is why the exhibition will be complemented by a special facet – the museum staff presenting their personal collection highlights. These subjective contemplations are a personal impulse and convey a profound connection with the artist.

The Early Years in Vienna
The exhibition "Cranach – The Early Years in Vienna" in the Oskar Reinhart Collection " Am Römerholz" pays tribute to the artistic beginnings of Lucas Cranach the Elder for the first time together with the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. The artist, who came from Franconia, created his earliest known works around 1500 in Vienna. Their markedly expressive style clearly distinguishes them from the later courtly-elegant formal language that is considered typical of Cranach. Only a negligible number of works from the early artistic phase are known - the key works are now in Winterthur and Vienna and, supplemented by high-calibre loans, are the focus of the exhibition. The exhibition offers a uniquely comprehensive overview of Cranach's early work.

Symbolism in Poland around 1900
Polish painting at the dawn of the 20th century transports the beholder to a world of myths and legends, dreamlike landscapes, ancient traditions and customs, and the depths of the human soul. In a nation without sovereignty – until its independence in 1918, Poland had been partitioned between Prussia, the Russian and the Austro-Hungarian Empires – a young generation of artists began to breathe new life into the art of painting. With their works, they created what was lacking in the political arena: a common identity. Drawing inspiration from Polish history, culture, and the natural environment, they also looked outwards to the artistic centres of Berlin, Munich, Paris, St. Petersburg, and Vienna. For the first time in Germany, the Kunsthalle München presents over 130 important works from public and private collections in a comprehensive exhibition devoted to the flowering of Polish art between 1890 and 1918.

In the art of the 20th & 21st century
Flowers accompany us in everyday life and are associated with personal memories. At the same time, they have been a common theme in art for centuries. With the age of the Baroque, the flower still life became an independent pictorial genre, in which the beauty of nature as well as the transience of earthly existence were expressed. Even in modern and contemporary art, the motif has not lost its fascination.
