'Mogamma (A Painting in Four Parts)' by Julie Mehretu

Twenty-First-Century Painting

Contemporary painters embrace “artistic pluralism,” which encourages diversity in artistic intention and style across media and disciplines. This expansiveness characterizes the art of painting today, reflecting attitudes and influences informed by shifting transcultural exchanges. Highlights of the contemporary collection include major works by Rashid Johnson, Alex Katz, Chris Martin, Laura Owens, Julie Mehretu, and Kehinde Wiley.
