Bill Viola: The Raft

October 10, 2019 - January 5, 2020

New Britain, CT 06052 United States
+ Google Map
Free with Museum admission

This October, the NBMAA will present The Raft, a powerful video installation by one of the most highly regarded contemporary artists. Meticulously captured in slow-motion, The Raft addresses human calamity and shared humanity, provoking a consideration of the range of responses to crisis. The work is inspired by art historical sources from ancient Greek and Roman friezes to Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa (1818–19), a monumental Romantic painting of survivors of a shipwreck. Originally created for the 2004 Olympics in Athens, the presentation is part of a new national tour, organized by the American Federation of Arts and Bill Viola Studio.   The Raft is part of ArtRoom, an ongoing series of contemporary art installations organized by the AFA.

For America: Paintings from the National Academy of Design

October 16, 2019 - January 26, 2020
New Britain Museum of American Art, 56 Lexington St.
New Britain, CT 06052 United States

Free with Museum admission

From its inception to the present, the NAD has required all Academicians to donate a representative work to the Academy’s collection, and, from 1839 to 1994, the Academy also required Associates to present a portrait of themselves, whether painted by their own hand or that of a fellow artist. Over the decades, this rule has resulted in a distinctive collection of American art that today totals over 8,000 works and includes nearly every major American artist. For America: Paintings from the National Academy of Design is the first exhibition to highlight this decisive feature of the collection—the joint presentation of an artist’s portrait with his or her diploma works.   Featuring over ninety paintings, the exhibition presents not only a visual document of the Academy’s membership but a unique history of American art from 1809 to present.
