Wood paneled and furnished with the trappings of a 1961 collector's den, The Undisciplined Collector evokes the year of the Rose Art Museum's founding and serves as an introduction to the rich history of collecting at Brandeis University.
This exhibition is the first large-scale museum exhibition in North America devoted to the work of celebrated New York-based artist Joe Bradley (b. 1975, Kittery, Maine).
As part of his Perlmutter residency, Chicago-based artist Tony Lewis (b. 1986) has created a site-specific project that grows out of his ongoing investigations of the relationships between drawing, abstraction, and language.
In conjunction with Joe Bradley’s solo exhibition in the Foster Wing (October 15, 2017–January 28, 2018), the artist will select a group of works from the Rose collection for an innovative display that draws upon masterworks and lesser-known gems of the museum’s holdings.
Tracing connections from early to recently acquired objects, this presentation is the first in a series to explore the origins and thematic through lines in the Rose Art Museum’s collection.
