FORT WORTH, TX.- Amon Carter Museum Director Ron Tyler announced today the museum’s 2010 exhibition schedule. Comprised of three special exhibitions that celebrate modern art, each will focus on different American modern art movements spanning the years 1902 to 1962 in a variety of media including works on paper, paintings, sculpture and photographs.

“We have a stellar line-up of special exhibitions in 2010, which complement our own modernist holdings,” Tyler says. “This is a great opportunity for us to further educate our visitors about America’s top artists of the early to mid-1900s. We look forward to a terrific year of modern art.”

Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s–1950s
June 26–September 5, 2010


The geometrical abstract art movements of Argentina, Brazil, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela from the 1920s to 1950s are investigated in this special exhibition from the Newark Museum, Newark, N.J. Featuring approximately 80 paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, drawings and films, Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s–1950s juxtaposes the work of South and North American artists during the movement’s formative decades. The exhibition includes several works by artists represented in the Amon Carter Museum’s collection, including Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis and Louise Nevelson, and is a first-time opportunity for Carter visitors to see how American modernists influenced and were influenced by artists from South America.

American Modern: Abbott, Evans, Bourke-White
October 2, 2010–January 2, 2011


This special exhibition demonstrates how documentary photography transformed modern art in America through an examination of the work of photographers Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, and Walker Evans. In the 1930s, American photographers pushed the genre of documentary photography to the forefront of public culture in the United States and onto the walls of newly opened museums and art galleries. Together, the careers of Abbott, Bourke-White, and Evans chronicle the fortunes of the medium during this important decade.

American Modern: Abbott, Evans, Bourke-White has been co-organized by the Amon Carter Museum and the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville, Maine.
