Arik Levy: Un/Natural History

This exhibition showcases works by internationally renowned artist, designer, photographer and video artist Arik Levy (Israeli, b. 1963), who has gained global recognition with his sculptures and collectable creations. Levy’s innate scientific and poetic savvy, mixed with his interest in design innovation, simplicity and experimentation, allow him to translate concepts into sculpture, space and experiences. The exhibition will include examples of his Rock series, an ever-growing sequence of sculptures shaped like minerals and composed of reflective surfaces, such as polished stainless steel. Levy’s work has won dozens of design awards and is shown and collected in public and private collections all over the world. September 5, 2017 – June 2, 2018

Artis—Encounters

Artis—Encounters

Highlights from the Permanent Collection

Artis—Encounters features a selection of works from The Baker Museum’s permanent collection by American, European and Mexican artists. Selected for their aesthetic, stylistic and thematic attributes, this group of paintings and sculptures acquires new meaning in the context of Hayes Hall and in the company of installations like Louise Nevelson’s Dawn’s Forest as well as sculptures displayed around campus. A painting by Robert Motherwell is put in dialogue with Yaacov Agam’s Gateway to the Arts, while the fragmented form in Rufino Tamayo’s Desnudo en blanco (White Nude) contrasts with the smooth surface of Hanneke Beaumont’s Bronze 73 (L’Ennui), among other significant new acquisitions on view for the first time. Artis—Encounters invites visitors to discover connections between the visual and performing arts, foster dialogue about ideas and enjoy unexpected encounters with beautiful works of art. This exhibition is organized by Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum. November 2, 2017 – June 2, 2018

Dawn's Forest

The Sculpture of Louise Nevelson

One of the towering figures of 20th century American art, Louise Nevelson was known for her tightly woven compositions created often from scraps of wood and unified by monochromatic themes, mostly black and white. Dawn’s Forest is Nevelson’s largest work and incorporates pieces she created as early as the 1970s. The work, which weighs more than three tons and is nearly 25 feet tall at its highest point, will be arranged in segments throughout the Artis—Naples campus. September 5, 2016 – June 2, 2018

Art and Music from the Permanent Collection

This exhibition draws on The Baker Museum’s deep connection with music in visual art, whether fashioned through direct representation or metaphor. Selected works from the permanent collection explores the representation of music through an in-depth look at a group of paintings, sculptures, prints and objects by 20th-century artists, and shows a wide range of approaches to the metaphors for love; religious devotion; harmony; the passage of time; death and immortality — all themes of significance in music and the visual arts. September 2018 – January 2019
