The Kemper Art Museum's collection encompasses some 3,000 objects, with the strongest holdings in 19th-, 20th- and 21st-century European and American art. Through its exhibitions and programs, the museum encourages discussion about the meaning of art and culture to contemporary life.
Exhibition highlighting work made in the past 12 years by artists living and working in Germany.
The art world loves to categorize artists by their style or "school," particularly if the artists all hail from the same part of the world in the s...
This exhibition of sixteen artworks from post-unified Germany does not overtly speak to the political tumult of their cultural origins — and that may precisely be the point. Ranging in media from painting and sculptural installation to... More »
The dogged awkwardness of Cubist pioneer Georges Braque is chronicled with an affectionate and (literally) microscopic lens in this collection of World War II-era still lifes. Tracking the artist — almost best known for perpetually falling under... More »
Whereas Jonathan Richman and Paul McCartney both wrote songs referencing Pablo Picasso, we don't know of any popular music that alludes to Georges Braque. The Spaniard Picasso and the Frenchman Braque jointly pioneered cubism, yet it's the former... More »
Notations: Contemporary Drawing as Idea and Process In an era driven by conceptualism and abstraction, where does a medium that was once devoted to pastoral sketches, figure drawing and plotting out large-scale paintings fit in? This survey of... More »

In the past five years, Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson's site-specific work has been exhibited at the Tate Modern in London, the Gallery Koyanagi in Tokyo, San Francisco's MOMA and...the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis. Wash. U.'s campus gallery packs more punch than you'd imagine. Like most of Eliasson's work, Your Imploded View, purchased for the Kemper's new Fumihiko Maki-designed location in 2006, toys with space and your senses. It's a 600-pound... More »
By virtue of its name change, the former Washington University Gallery of Art now qualifies as a museum, but it matters not: Inside Out Loud was the best exhibition anywhere this year. Curated by Janine Mileaf of Swarthmore College, this incredible survey brought together poetic and harrowing works by an impressive roster of artists including Orlan, Gran Fury, Nan Goldin, Mark Dion, Hannah Wilke and Cindy Sherman. But Inside Out Loud was more than an exhibition: It was a choreographed... More »
