Pairings: The Collection at 50

Pairings:
The Collection at 50

February 29 – December 30, 2012

For its 50th anniversary, OCMA showcases its permanent collection in a series of twelve short-term installations. More than fifty works by twenty-four artists in OCMA’s collection are juxtaposed in combinations that run against the grain of their typical generational and/or stylistic affinities. Established artists from the 1960s contrast with artists who have emerged over the past ten years, painters are paired with video artists, conceptual art pioneers meet their post-conceptual successors, and abstraction joined with representation.
