Date:
17 July - 03 January 2016
Venue:

With "Testing Testing", the Ackland Art Museum highlights ways in which art made since 1960 has tested possibilities both within and beyond conventional boundaries of art-making. Through experimentation, innovation, and skill, artists have assessed the potential not only of new materials in new combinations, but also of traditional modes such as figuration and abstraction. 

The exhibition includes works by approximately 50 artists, including José Bedia, Sanford Biggers, Anthony Caro, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Thornton Dial, Barkley Hendricks, Rachel Howard, Annette Lemieux, Al Held, Hung Liu, Takashi Murakami, Kenneth Noland, Richard Nonas, Jules Olitski, Tony Oursler, Nam June Paik, Philip Pearlstein, Ken Price, Sean Scully, George Segal, Yinka Shonibare, Lorna Simpson, Do-Ho Suh, Stella Waitzkin, John Wesley, H.C. Westermann, and others.
