On view through Sept. 3
Women Artists in Paris, 1850–1900 examines a key period in the history of art during which an international group of women artists overcame gender-based restrictions to advance their art, taking important steps in the fight for a more egalitarian art world. Featuring more than seventy paintings, this exhibition presents renowned artists such as Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Rosa Bonheur along with their lesser known but equally remarkable peers, including Anna Ancher, Lilla Cabot Perry, and Paula Modersohn-Becker.

Jennifer Steinkamp: Blind Eye

Opens June 30
Los Angeles-based media and installation artist Jennifer Steinkamp’s cutting-edge art engages with one of the oldest themes in art history—nature. By deconstructing and re-engineering computer code, the artist utilizes the abstract language of technology to create vibrant images rooted in the natural world. The exhibition, Jennifer Steinkamp: Blind Eye, consists of six pieces including a new projection, Blind Eye, conceived by the artist to interact with the Clark’s 140-acre setting and the architecture of the Lunder Center at Stone Hill. Click here to read the press release.
