Ferran Adrià: Notes on Creativity is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the visualization and drawing practices of master chef Ferran Adrià. The exhibition emphasizes the role of drawing in Adrià’s quest to understand creativity. His complex body of work positions the medium as both a philosophical tool—used to organize and convey knowledge, meaning, and signification-—as well as a physical object—used to synthesize over twenty years of innovation in the kitchen.

ADVISORY 1/17/15: Due to a technical difficulty, this work is temporarily off view until further notice. 

Jennifer Steinkamp creates highly detailed, digital animations of motifs from nature. Projected at a large scale, they respond to the architectural spaces in which they are shown and play with the limits of perception by opening up an almost otherworldly sense of space. Both ephemeral and immersive, Steinkamp’s animations feature branches, flowers, vines, and trees that shift and sway as if propelled by a swirling breeze.

Kirk Mangus (1952-2013) was an internationally recognized ceramicist, and a dedicated teacher and mentor for almost 30 years at Kent State University.

Kirk Mangus: Things Love is the artist’s first comprehensive museum survey. The exhibition explores the breadth of his practice, philosophy of making, and influence in the region and beyond.

Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent is the first full-scale survey of more than thirty years of work by Corita Kent (1918-1986). A teacher at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and a civil rights, feminist, and anti-war activist, Corita, as she is commonly referred to, was one of the most popular American graphic artists of the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout her rich and varied career, she made thousands of posters, murals, and signature serigraphs that combine her passions for faith and politics.

Introducing strange elements to familiar characters and locations, Op de Beeck creates an uncertain sense of time and place. His still lifes, landscapes, and interiors explore how our vision of the world is shaped by a blend of genre, imagination, and memory. This exhibition presents Op de Beeck’s black-and-white video Staging Silence (2) (2013).

DIRGE: Reflections on [Life and] Death explores how contemporary artists use their individual practices to capture, react to, reflect on, and make sense of mortality. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, video, installation, drawing, and mixed media artworks by artists both living and deceased. Works range from reflections on one’s imminent death to expressions of grief, memory, and transcendence. Rather than a study of the forces that cause death, the exhibition investigates mortality to identify and reinforce the most powerful characteristics of life.
