Conversations—Marking 20 Years

Friday, May 16, 2014 to Sunday, September 21, 2014
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

Conversations—Marking 20 Years brings together premiere works of art from the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art on the occasion of the Museum’s 20th anniversary. Pairings and clusters will spark dialogue between the visitor and the works of art, questions amongst friends who visit the exhibition, and conversations about the relationships between artists and the art that is a testament to their time. Marking 20 Years indeed marks a signature moment in the history of the Kemper Museum. It offers visitors an opportunity to reflect upon the creation of the Kemper Museum’s Permanent Collection, to be delighted by a favorite, or to be challenged by works new to the Collection.
