Celebrating the Rose Art Museum’s 60th anniversary, the exhibition re: collections, Six Decades at the Rose Art Museum “highlights the Rose’s radical roots, while showcasing the potential for future transformations,” says a Rose Art Museum spokesperson.

Consisting of artworks drawn from the museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition aims to recontextualize the familiar while introducing the new, displaying well-known works alongside emerging and historically underrepresented artists.

The exhibit “is a culmination of many years of research, teaching and critical thinking about the art historical canon—how it was forged, by whom, its biases, omissions and deliberate exclusions,” said Gannit Ankori, Henry and Lois Foster Director and Chief Curator. “The curatorial team and I knew that we didn’t want to feature the Rose’s incredible collection as a mere illustration of the traditional Euro- and U.S.-centric narrative of art. We didn’t want to reiterate such limited and limiting perspectives of human creativity.”
