Anxious States: Expressionism from Gauguin to Oliveira
- December 6, 2017
Featuring works from Mills College Art Museum’s collection, Anxious States: Expressionism from Gaugin to Oliveira follows the evolution of Expressionism as an artistic response to the anxieties of modernity, such as disruptive technologies and global war, across a range of time periods and cultures. Expressionism describes an aesthetic style distilled from the feelings of uncertainty and alienation born amid the industrialization of the early 20th Century.
The works included in this exhibition can be read as emotional as well as political reactions to a rapidly changing world.
