Tickets for one of the Cincinnati Art Museum's most highly anticipated exhibits are now on sale.

 

"Terracotta Army: Legacy of the First Emperor of China," which runs April 20-Aug. 12, features 120 pieces showcasing the formation and influence of China's Qin dynasty, including life-sized terra-cotta warrior figures, jade ornaments, arms and armor, and ritual bronze vessels.

 

Its Cincinnati curator says the exhibit contains artifacts from "the most important archaeological discovery of the 20th century." The works, which date from 770 to 206 B.C., are among the oldest Asian artworks ever shown at the museum, and more than 40 of the items have never been displayed before in the U.S.

Rarely seen terracotta treasures reveal legacy of China’s first emperor in Cincinnati

 

The terracotta infantryman wears body armor and stands at attention with a fierce expression. He appears ready to leap into battle. His hair is swept into a topknot, wrapped by a ribbon that shows vestiges of red paint added 23 centuries ago.

 

The stunningly lifelike figure is one of 8,000 ancient terracotta warriors and horses discovered by local farmers who were digging a well in 1974 near the city of Xi’an in Shaanxi Province, China. The army was meant to accompany China’s First Emperor, Qin Shihuang, into the afterlife.

 

Nine of the warriors, as well as a cavalry horse, arms and armor, works in gold and silver, ancient vessels and a spectacular, life-like replica of a chariot and rider with four horses will be on display in Cincinnati Art Museum’s “Terracotta Army: Legacy of the First Emperor of China,” April 20-Aug. 12.

Gillian Wearing exhibit this fall:

http://www.cincinnatiartmuseum.org/wearing

 

Some of you *might* remember her video installation at the old CAC around 2000 simply called Drunk.  That one was okay but greatly improved upon by 2003's Broad St., one of the most brilliant video installations ever devised. 

 

If we're lucky, they'll have that one in this exhibit.  It was comprised of a half dozen scenes from various low-class English bars.  The sound from each screen was on high volume so they all mixed together, just like in a real bar.  The footage was like totally outrageous, pre-pickup artist stuff.  Bad pickup attempts, bad dancing.  I remember one fascinating journey by someone from the bar through an amazingly thick crowd crowd to the bathroom.  Another was a pre-cell phone attempt by somebody to find a friend in a similarly dense crowd.

“No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man” will take over much of the museum in two phases starting April 26 with immersive installations, over-sized sculptures, art cars, photography and more. The second phase with additional art will open June 7; both phases of the exhibition will close Sept. 2.

Rare Italian Renaissance masterpiece to make Cincinnati debut

 

lavecchia*400xx857-857-0-0.png

 

A masterpiece by Renaissance painter Giorgione is coming to the Cincinnati Art Museum, marking the first time a work by the artist has been displayed in Cincinnati.

 

“La Vecchia” (Italian for “the old woman”) will be on view Feb. 15–May 5 in what will be the painting’s first exhibition following a major conservation treatment.

 

Giorgione was born in 1477 and spent most of his career in Venice, where he died in 1510. As few as two dozen paintings attributed to the artist are still in existence. His work influenced artists for another two centuries, and he has been called the founder of 16th-century painting in Venice.

Here's what's coming to Cincinnati Art Museum this spring

 

There's only one place in Cincinnati where you can expect to find a "mutant art vehicle" straight from the psychedelic Burning Man festival alongside the delicate impressionist paintings of Renoir: the Cincinnati Art Museum, which is bringing three exhibitions vastly different in feel and subject matter to its halls this spring.

 

Spanning more than a century, works celebrating Cincinnati's rich art education legacy, the radical imaginings of Burning Man and the glory of belle époque Paris are close to debuting at CAM. Here's a quick preview of each exhibit:

 

"Art Academy of Cincinnati at 150: A Celebration in Drawings and Prints"

Dates: Feb. 1-April 28

Cincinnati Art Museum brings City of Light's 'beautiful era' to life

 

renoir-ppp02364*750xx782-440-0-0.jpg

 

The Paris Exposition of 1900 was a glorious moment that celebrated the arts and sciences at the turn of the century. It was the most magnificent international expo to date, with moving sidewalks, colored fountains and 51 million visitors – more than the total population of France.

 

It applauded all that was evocative, creative and luminous about the City of Light, from its impressionist art by Monet, Renoir and Pissarro to Parisian nightlife in the cafes and cabarets immortalized in posters by Toulouse-Lautrec. The expo celebrated scientific ingenuity and design. It was the peak of what was known as La Belle Époque (the beautiful era).

 

Cincinnati Art Museum is bringing that opulent, “beautiful era” to life in “Paris 1900: City of Entertainment” organized by the Petit Palais Museum of Fine Arts, which was originally built for the Universal Exposition. The exhibition, featuring 230 objects from the Petit Palais and other city of Paris museums, will be on view March 1-May 12 in the Western & Southern galleries.
