Culture Shock: American Artists from Europe, 1913–1953

March 14–July 12, 2020
Mezzanine

See American art through international eyes in Culture Shock: American Artists from Europe, 1913–1953. From experimental abstractions to politically charged themes, this exhibition brings together nearly forty prints and drawings created by artists who immigrated to America from Europe during the first half of the twentieth century. Coming  from a range of artistic, ethnic, and social backgrounds, these individuals used art to navigate their experiences after moving to a new country. On view in our new Works on Paper gallery, Culture Shock highlights a rarely seen part of the Carter’s collection, including many works that have never been on view.
