Organized in celebration of the Rose’s 60th anniversary, "re: collections, Six Decades at the Rose Art Museum" casts a critical eye in two directions: highlighting the radical roots from which the museum grew, while showcasing the potential for future transformations.

"Frida Kahlo: POSE" is a focused exhibition organized in five overlapping sections – posing; composing; exposing; queering, and self-fashioning – that examines Kahlo's complex identity as a path-breaking individual and artist. Contemporary art from the Rose permanent collection will be placed in dialogue with Kahlo’s work, pointing to the inspiring legacies and cultural impact of this transgressive artist.
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.
An integral part of the image of the Rose Art Museum, the antique Victorian lampposts and concrete benches of Chris Burden's sculpture "Light of Reason" serves as an inviting gateway to the museum and a dynamic outdoor space for the Brandeis community.
