LUMA at 10: Greatest Hits
August 22–October 11, 2015
In celebration of LUMA’s 10th anniversary, the museum will host an exhibition of its greatest hits from past exhibitions and 10 years of acquisitions. LUMA will show Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds (2008), an exhibition consisting of large helium-filled, pillow-like forms made from silver plastic film. First shown in 1966 at the Castelli Gallery in New York, the clouds will float through 1,600 square feet of gallery space at LUMA.
LUMA will reprise The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama (2006) with pieces that have subsequently entered the museum’s collection. Among them will be Michele Oka Doner’s Harp and Lyre, Era and Donald Farnsworth’s Dharmakaya, Gabriela Morawetz’s Regarde, Andra Samelson’s Bamiyan: A Continuum, and Kisho Mukaiyama’s Sanmon’s WCC - yupotanjyu + nupotanje.
LUMA will also exhibit its developing collection of Chicago artists, among them William Conger, Vadim Katznelson, and Vera Klement. And, join us for a night 10 years in the making!
Celebrate 10 years with 10 free days! • Free admission to all between September 1 and 11.
