Anxious States: Expressionism from Gauguin to Oliveira
December 6, 2017-May 27, 2018

Opening Reception: Wednesday, December 6, 2017 | 4:00-5:00 pm
Mills College Art Museum, Back Gallery*

Featuring works from the Mills College Art Museum’s collection, Anxious States: Expressionism from Gaugin to Oliveira follows the evolution of Expressionism as an artistic response to anxieties of contemporary life, disruptive technologies, and global war across a range of time periods and cultures. Expressionism describes an aesthetic style developed from the feelings of uncertainty and alienation that accompanied rapid industrialization during the early 20th century.

Anxious States is curated by Savana Ames, Natasha Culbreth, Eva Goldstein-Moore, Hisaka Marybayashi, and Carmen Wiley, and is accompanied by a digital exhibition catalogue.

*MCAM’s back gallery is currently accessible by stairs only. A hardcopy of the exhibition catalogue will be available upon request and a digital version will be accessible through our website. We apologize for this hindrance.
