I.M. Pei believed that “Architecture is the very mirror of life.” By this, he meant that a society’s architecture reflects its history, spirit, and values. With roots in function and culture, the same can also be said of ceramics. This exhibition uses work from the permanent collection to explore the harmony between art and architecture in Pei’s building over the past half century.

Art Within Art: The Everson at 50 commemorates the 50th anniversary of architect I.M. Pei’s landmark Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition and associated programming explore Pei’s radical notion that the structure of a museum is as important as the art it contains, a belief that directly impacts curatorial choices in both art and programs. Including never before seen plans, photographs, models, ephemera, and archival materials alongside selected artworks from the Everson’s collection, Art Within Art examines the aesthetic and conceptual similarities between Pei’s building and the art it houses, revealing the lasting impact of great architecture.
