David Driskell: Icons of Nature and History

David Driskell (1931–2020) was one of the most revered American artists of his generation, long recognized for his vibrant and versatile painting and printmaking practices that combined keen observations of the American landscape with the imagery and aesthetic innovations of the African diaspora.

This is the first exhibition to unite his paintings and works on paper, bringing approximately 60 artworks together to present highlights of his career. It is also the first major survey of his work since his death in April 2020 at the age of 88.

Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors

This acclaimed video installation by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson features a mesmerizing nine-channel sound and video recording of performers and musicians playing a composition by the artist and his collaborators Davíð Þór Jónsson and Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir.

 

Although playing together in unison, the performers are in separate rooms in a historic 43-room mansion in upstate New York. The unique arrangement poignantly expresses experiences of love, loss, separation and reunion.

 

The installation is accompanied by Postcards to Marguerite, a multipart work that draws a literary parallel to the musical exchange between friend in The Visitors.

We encourage those interested to use the Bank of America Museums on Us Location Finder tool to search for participating cultural attractions, understand any applicable new admission protocols at Museums on Us partner institutions, and to check with museums directly for their current reopening plans, safety procedures and operating hours.
