Expired: Mudec : permanent collection unveiled and new exhibitions on view
On October 28, MUDEC unveiled its permanent collection, which includes more than seven thousand traditional artworks from around the world with diverse provenances and from many different epochs. Almost all of it is accessible to the public, both in the exhibition galleries and in the museum’s storage, which can be visited by appointment. Although the setting is new, the collection consists mostly of material accumulated over the last two hundred years through donations by missionaries, explorers, and Milanese collectors. Two exhibitions likely to interest tribal art aficionados are on view there until February 21, 2016: Gauguin. Racconti dal paradiso (Gauguin: Stories from Paradise) and A Beautiful Confluence, Anni e Josef Albers e l’America Latina, examining the relationships between the creations of the Bauhaus-trained artist couple and the Pre-Columbian objects they collected after they moved to the American continent.

Expired: Preserving What is Valued and My Siberian Year at the Pitt Rivers
The Pitt Rivers museum presents two smaller-format shows particularly worthy of note. Preserving What is Valued examines how different societies deal with the challenge of repairing objects. It also looks at how restoration is dealt with by professionals, most often in the foreign institutions in which they frequently wind up. The objects included in the exhibition are all drawn from the museum’s collection and many feature ingenious and often beautiful native repairs. Another small show, My Siberian Year, 1914–1915, whose title reflects that of the book by Polish anthropologist Marie Antoinette Czaplicka, published by Mills & Boon in 1916, which is about the expedition in Siberia she led on behalf of Oxford University and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The show celebrates the centennial of this expedition, which was mainly devoted to the study of the Evenks peoples. The installation presents photographs and relevant objects, many field collected by Czaplicka.
Expired: A Delicate Legacy: Colonial Traces in Modern Times
Although it was relatively brief, German colonial activity was intense and resulted in the formation of comprehensive ethnographic collections destined for museums, one of which was the Landesmuseum. Certain issues are inherent in the management of a collection that dates from a bygone era, especially one characterized by the affirmation of European hegemony over faraway peoples rather than emphasizing the traditional systems of social organization among the peoples of Africa and Oceania. Now in the twenty-first century and sensitive to these issues, the Landesmuseum is presenting a thoughtprovoking reflection on the subject in the form of Heikles Erbe: Koloniale Spuren bis in die Gegenwart, on view until February 26, 2017. This show examines Germany’s relationships with areas like the Bismarck Archipelago, Matty Island, Samoa, and East Africa, among others. By looking at the past, it strives to develop a clearer perception that will help shape the future.
Expired: GEOMETRIES : American Geometric Abstraction 1880 - 2016
John Molloy Gallery is pleased to announce “GEOMETRIES, American Geometric Abstraction 1880 – 2016”, opening January 14th, 2016. The exhibition adds a new dimension to this canon in American Art with the inclusion of Plains and Plateau Indian Parfleches from the 1880s to the early 20th century. Fifty years before Ilya Bolotowsky made his work, these rawhide objects were painted with geometric motifs and primary colors, using a visually similar pictorial language. The lines, shapes, composition and color of the Native American works provide a stunning comparison to the more contemporary works included here by such artists as Bolotowsky, Betty Parsons and Larissa Nowicki. Comparisons between indigenous and modern art are classic art historical conversations, with our understanding of each body of work enriched by an enlarged context.
