Opening September 22, 2023
Gallery artist Audrey Flack's work Queen (1976) will be included in the group exhibition American Voices and Visions: Modern and Contemporary Art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC. The Smithsonian American Art Museum reopens its modern and contemporary galleries Sept. 22 with a new installation of its permanent collection that freshly examines the explosion of possibility in American art between the 1940s and today. Artists using new materials and techniques—and inspired by the social, cultural and technological changes around them—are featured in American Voices and Visions: Modern and Contemporary Art. This is the initial phase of a multiyear renewal and reinstallation of the museum’s permanent collection galleries slated for overall completion in 2026 in honor of America’s semiquincentennial.
