MICA—Then/Now, an invitational exhibition curated by Painting Department Chair Barry Nemett, reflects on time and ties as it creates a visual conversation among artists from multiple generations. Showcasing 150 years of work from prominent artists with significant ties to MICA, the exhibition took place simultaneously at the Ethan Cohen Gallery in New York City (251 W. 19th St.) and Kunsthalle Beacon (211 Fishkill Ave.) in Beacon, New York in fall 2013. By focusing on the longest continuously operating degree-granting college of art and design in the United States, Nemett hoped to explore the ideas of “then and now,” allowing viewers to reflect on both the connections and differences of visual art created over a wide span of years. In some cases, participating artists showed both examples of their work created as students at MICA and more current images and objects. For more information, visit ecfa.com or kubeny.org.
