Copley to Kentridge: What’s New in the Collection?
September 14, 2013 - December 1, 2013
Come in and meet the newest residents of the KIA: a rare mythological painting by John Singleton Copley (a teenage prodigy at the time); a lithographic scene from a Verdi opera about murder at a masked ball; a giant, prancing nose, theatrically envisioned and printed by William Kentridge; and a sculptural figure so realistic, you may ask it for directions. The collection of art preserved in the care of the KIA grows through gifts, bequests, and purchases. For several of the works on display, this exhibition will mark their Kalamazoo debut.
