The World of Frida

Edward E. and Jane B. Ford Gallery
Open February 22, 2020 through April 26, 2020

Coming to MOAS from the Bedford Gallery in California, this exhibition celebrates the culture, style, and persona of visionary painter Frida Kahlo, an artist who continues to inspire with her story of love, adventure, and pain. With over 100 works in all types of media by contemporary artists in the exhibition and record-breaking attendance during its first showing, the legacy of this iconic artist is still strong a century after her life and career.

Frida Kahlo is the subject of The World of Frida, a traveling exhibition that features 150 artists' interpretation of her life and art, her love of animals, and her vibrant Mexican culture. The artists in this show hail from around the world and work in all forms of media including painting, photography, and sculpture.

The World of Frida was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA.

Fragile Beauty: Masterworks of Porcelain and Glass from the Collection

Bouchelle Changing Gallery
Open January 18, 2020 through October 2, 2020

Highlighting centuries of fine workmanship in porcelain and glass, this exhibition brings together some of the most beautiful pieces in these media to be found in the MOAS collection. Decorative arts are particularly well-represented in the Museum's collection and visitors will be impressed by the wealth of intricate detail and stunning craftsmanship displayed by these fragile, sculptural pieces. With references to artistic tastes of the past, they represent traditions in porcelain and glass that have long since given way to primarily streamlined Modernism.
