Scrutiny After The Glimpse
Depicting the human form has been a primary focus of artists since the beginning of recorded history. The Haggerty Museum of Artâ€™s summer exhibition, Scrutiny After The Glimpse, mines the museumâ€™s extensive permanent collection to explore how this art form has changed through the years, and how the worksâ€™ meanings vary when art from different eras and styles is juxtaposed.
Scrutiny After The Glimpse opens June 4 and runs through August 3 at the Haggerty on Marquette Universityâ€™s campus.
The exhibition will occupy the entire first level of the museum and includes paintings, drawings, prints, photography and sculpture, all from the Haggertyâ€™s permanent collection. It was inspired in part by the museumâ€™s 30th anniversary, which occurs this fall, noted Wally Mason, director and chief curator of the Haggerty Museum of Art. That prompted Mason and associate curator Emilia Layden to consider the different traditions reflected in the more than 4,500 items collected by the Haggerty during the past 30 years and what threads could be traced throughout the collection.
