The original complex on the bay known as the Singer building, designed by world-renowned architect Philip Johnson, opened to the public on October 4, 1972. To honor the past, celebrate the present, and plan for the future, a diverse selection of exhibitions and educational programs have been planned. Experience Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Frank Stella in a homage to the 1972 opening exhibition Johns, Stella, Warhol: Works in Series. The intention is to show the work of artists that occupied the AMST galleries at a time that these American men were and remain highly recognized for their modernist contributions to art and the cannon of art.
The exhibition will also give guests a focused look into what the interior of the Singer Building was like (minus the living plants and indoor smoking areas) 50 years ago. Planning for Warhol, Johns and Stella: Revisited began early 2020. The exhibition on view is made possible with loans from ten art museums around Texas and one Warhol piece from the Museum’s permanent collection. The art on view will span several decades and coincide with the opening of Past Paper// Present Marks: Responding to Rauschenberg an exhibition showcasing Jennifer Garza-Cuen and Odette England’s photogram works. Both exhibitions will run adjacent to exhibitions of the Museum’s permanent collection.
