The Question of Beauty

at Oklahoma City Museum of Art
 
October 13, 2017 - February 11, 2018
 

Some artists make a point of crafting visually dazzling images, while others wish for their work to be aesthetically displeasing—or indifferent at best. The Question of Beauty presents modern and contemporary art from the permanent collection that employs beauty as a mode of expression, together with work that either rejects or ignores beauty. This exhibition includes work by Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist and many others and offers visitors an invitation to be moved, repelled or simply feel ambivalent. See these incredible pieces before they return to the archives!
