Huntington announces exhibitions through 2011
The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens has announced that it will host nine exhibitions through 2011, including major shows dedicated to sculptor John Frame and the late artist-designer Sam Maloof.
As was previously reported, the Huntington will host an exhibition dedicated to writer Charles Bukowski (Oct. 9 to Feb. 14), featuring his papers, photographs and other memorabilia, as well as a show of bronzes from the collection of architect Peter Marino (Oct. 9 to Jan. 24).
"Three Fragments of a Lost Tale: Sculpture and Story by John Frame" (March 12 to June 20) will focus on the artist's sculptural figures, stage settings, still photographs and animated-film vignettes.
"The House That Sam Built: Sam Maloof and Art in the Pomona Valley, 1945-85" will feature 30 Maloof pieces in a display that is integrated with about 80 works by about 30 of his friends and colleagues who worked in other media.
Rounding out the Huntington's lineup is "Picturesque to Pastoral: British Landscape Prints From the Huntington’s Art Collections" (July 31 to Nov. 1), "Evolving Ideas: Midcentury Printmakers Explore Process" (Oct. 2 to Jan. 3) and a show of prints by Goya from the Huntington collection (Jan. 29 to March 7).
In addition, the Huntington will mount a show of 19th century art that explores finance and money titled "Taxing Visions: Financial Episodes in Late 19th Century American Art" (Jan. 29 to May 30). It will also produce the show "Reassessing the Regency: Elegance, Excess and Revolutions in England, 1811-20" (April 23 to Aug. 1), featuring rare books, manuscripts, prints and drawings.
