AWKWARD

February 15 until April 28, 2018

Your heart is in the right place, but your hair is not. You managed to look different than your parents, but you and your aunt share the same sweet tooth. Your older brother has not changed in years, but somehow looks exactly like your dad. You are great with children, but you wonder whether they will really appreciate your fashion sense. You uphold family traditions, but traditions can change from generation to generation. You have an uncle with a wild [...]

HOPE

September 17, 2017 – January 28, 2018

Over the last five decades, Cuban artists have used video art to explore the sociological, anthropological, political, spiritual and cultural realities of the island and its purposeful isolation. The artists explore a country torn by forces such as love and hate, desire and neglect, isolation and receptiveness, as well as western and eastern ideologies. Hope will highlight how a country full of contradictions became one of the most interesting places for the creation of contemporary art, and new media art [...]

NOEMA

June 11 - August 27, 2017

A noema is the object, or content, of a thought. But can we see the content of thought? Yes. Throughout history we’ve made many pictures of these ‘thought-objects’, often calling them ‘diagrams’. But the story of the diagram is quite different from the traditional history of art. Because they escape easy categorization, diagrams are everywhere, in corporate boardrooms and schools, in sports, dance and warfare, in art, philosophy, science, magic and everything in between. Instead of likeness, the diagram pursues [...]

BRAIN

October 16th, 2016 until February 12th, 2017

Putting a name to a face can sometimes be a challenge. But seeing intelligence through a face? ESMoA is opening eyes to the under-appreciated phenomena of typology in art through portraiture of some of the sharpest intellects of our time with Experience 25: BRAIN, featuring iconic works of photographer Peter Badge exploring the faces of Nobel Prize recipients. The study of “types” is often used in reference to distinct disciplines such as anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, and more. ESMoA’s Art Experience 25 proposes [...]

MATTER

June 05 - September 25, 2016

MATTER aims to stimulate curiosity about the myths of life. Mythology and science have historically been intertwined, as people throughout time have used mythology to understand the natural world. The new ESMoA Experience explores the convergence of mythology and modern science, with its constantly changing theories, through the eyes of young German artist Michael Sistig. In his first solo show in the United States, Sistig will invite us to take a glimpse into his approach of negotiating modern science through [...]

PLAN

February 21 - May 22, 2016

What is the point of making plans if the future is uncertain? By what process do we lay out a day’s, a month’s, or a year’s agenda even while knowing that mere coincidence may blow it apart like dandelion seeds in the breeze? And once we actually make a plan, do we stick with it, whatever the consequences, or do we improvise, come what may? PLAN juxtaposes rare artworks and artifacts from Eastern Europe with artworks by Egon Schiele, Odilon [...]
