This fall, the Rose Art Museum features highlights from the Rose Art Museum’s permanent collection and "profoundly moving work" from this year's Perlmutter Award winner, Tuesday Smillie.

"Passage," the exhibition of works from the Rose's permanent collection will include Pablo Picasso’s “Reclining Nude” (1934), which joined the Rose collection in 1991, given by New York art dealer Helen Serger in honor of the university’s founding supporters Jack and Lillian Poses. 

The Rose opens on Sept. 7, and will be open Wednesday – Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Fall exhibitions close Dec. 2.

More information on this year's exhibitions:

A selection of highlights from the Rose Art Museum’s permanent collection, Passage draws together works by a roster of international artists from the 1900s to the 1970s. As indicated by its title, the exhibition is both a shortcut through the depths of the collection and an approximation of significant artistic shifts that dominated the twentieth century.

Curated by Henry and Lois Foster Director and Chief Curator Luis A. Croquer, Passage includes works by Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Marisol Escobar, Juan Gris, Marsden Hartley, Wifredo Lam, Robert Motherwell, Louise Nevelson, Pablo Picasso, and Florine Stettheimer, among others.

"To build another world," Tuesday Smillie
"To build another world" is the first solo museum exhibition of Brooklyn-based artist Tuesday Smillie, who is the Rose's 2018-2019 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-In-Residence. 

In her early books and collages, as well as in recently completed watercolors and textile banners, Smillie explores transgender-feminist politics and activism, focusing on how visions of the world are spurred and structured by the imagery and language of both personal and shared histories. Staked by sources Smillie identifies as the cornerstones of her own practice, the objects in "To build another world" chart a lineage of resistance and reinvention and create a framework against which future revolutionary possibilities are poetically set.
