Visit the Addison Gallery of American Art virtually through this Zoom presentation.

Curators Gordon Wilkins and Rachel Vogel will lead participants on a virtual tour through the works and themes presented in the exhibition Free Association: New Acquisitions in Context.

This exhibition demonstrates how recently acquired works complement the Addison’s current holdings, drawing out new narratives, juxtapositions, and conversations across time and media. The entire second floor is given over to nine thematic galleries—the American West, interiors, the street, light, the body and nature, queer modernism, classical mythology, Bauhaus legacies, and the grid–each anchored by new acquisitions situated in conversation with works that entered the Addison’s collection at earlier moments in its nearly 100-year history. Taken together, this constellation of installations offers new ways of looking at a collection that is endlessly generative and constantly reinterpreted.

Free Association: New Acquisitions in Context will be on display at the Addison from September 1, 2023–February 11, 2024. The Addison Gallery of American Art is located at 3 Chapel Ave, Andover, MA on the campus of Phillips Academy.

This program will be recorded. A link to the recording will be sent to everyone who registers.
