Art Within Art: The Everson at 50
Opening October 13, 2018
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.
