Past/Future/Present: Contemporary Brazilian Art from the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo September 1 – December 31 Steele Gallery


n an era of globalization, old stereotypes of Brazil as a land of Carmen Miranda and carnaval have begun to give way to views of a burgeoning economy, beset by income inequalities. As our understanding of Brazilian culture transcends tourist attractions and nightly-news talking points, what does this mean for the question of authenticity? How can we begin to approach the essence of a complex culture that many of us know only through commercialized, highly-mediated images? this page:

that unite these artists are recurrent allusions to shared experiences, indigenous mythologies, social norms (and transgressions), and national art histories (both in homage and subversion). As the exhibition's title alludes, contemporary Brazilian artists maintain a creative dialogue with past national artistic traditions while looking toward the future with a global perspective and boundless creativity. Past/Future/Present is a singular opportunity for American audiences to experience an in-depth look at the practice of contemporary Brazilian artists now recognized as the pioneers of their generation. It is also the first large-scale exhibition in the United States to feature the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo’s extraordinary collection.

In Past/Future/Present, it quickly becomes evident that brasilidade or “Brazilianess” is not necessarily tied to physical geography. Rather, key aspects

The exhibition features 70 artworks created by 59 artists primarily between 1990 and 2010 in diverse media, including painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, and performance, as well as several historical anchors from the 1970s that illustrate conceptual continuities between past and present. During the course of the exhibition, three featured artists will travel from Brazil to Phoenix to give public lectures on their artistic practice. Beginning in August, the Museum will also host a Past/Future/ Present film series, bringing an even wider view of Brazil to Phoenix through screenings of five films.

WHAT, IN OTHER WORDS, IS “BRAZILIAN” ABOUT CONTEMPORARY BRAZILIAN ART? The upcoming exhibition, Past/Future/ Present: Contemporary Brazilian Art from the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo, examines this question in the context of artistic practice. For the first time in the history of Arizona, Past/Future/ Present brings to Phoenix Art Museum a panorama of the most innovative art produced in Brazil from the 1990s to the 2010s. This varied selection of works highlights the perils of any attempt to define some quality approaching authenticity, or essence. When the artists' shared nationality is the common denominator, what other qualities make one work akin to others? What, in other words, is “Brazilian” about contemporary Brazilian art?

Border Crossings: Mexico and the American Southwest

Through Summer 2018 Marshall and Hendler Galleries


his year, Phoenix Art Museum's storage vaults are receiving extra care and attention as they are undergoing some major procedures. In order to facilitate vital updates to fire-prevention and plumbing systems, the Museum will temporarily close its North Wing galleries, throughout the duration of the construction through April 2018. Fortunately, this move represented the safest, most efficient way to allow for important improvements while safekeeping the Museum's collections. Solving the Museum's space issues inspired creativity and collaboration among curatorial departments. Vanessa Davidson, the Shawn and Joe Lampe Curator of Latin American Art, and Betsy Fahlman, adjunct

curator of American art, have collaborated to rehome American works of art alongside works by Mexican artists. Border Crossings: Mexico and the American Southwest speaks to the region’s shared heritage and cultural commonalities, in addition to underscoring the powerful resources in the Museum’s permanent collection. As Gilbert Vicario, the Selig Family Chief Curator, said, “Preparing for the move required that we conduct a more thorough audit of the objects stored in our vaults, which provided our curators with a unique opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the works in our collection. What resulted is a thoughtful presentation of the art of Mexico and the American Southwest, which we are especially excited to share with our community.”

The works featured, all created between 1916 and 1950 and drawn from internal collections, re-enact across gallery walls a cultural conversation that has been taking place between Mexico and the United States throughout centuries of shared history. The lens of focus includes four broad themes: women artists, landscape, indigenous subjects, and portraits. Other works affected by this move will also be on view in new spaces throughout the Museum. European art will be on view in Selections from the Schorr Collection, located in the Harnett Gallery in the South Wing and the Ullman Gallery, on the first floor of the North Wing. Rarely-seen works by Philip C. Curtis will be on view as part of the exhibition Philip C. Curtis: The New Deal and American Regionalism.

Border Crossings: Mexico and the American Southwest is organized by Phoenix Art Museum. It is made possible through the generosity of donors to the Museum’s annual fund.



Philip C. Curtis: The New Deal and American Regionalism Through May 20, 2018 Lewis Gallery


he works of Philip C. Curtis are a mainstay of Phoenix Art Museum. His ethereal, surrealistinspired figures and stark, deserttone color palette are a comforting presence in the Museum, his paintings beloved companions who have long held their treasured place in the Ullman Gallery, as the Museum, and the city itself, continues to grow and expand around them.

However, even the most stalwart presence has more dimensions than one may realize. The Museum's new exhibition, Philip C. Curtis: The New Deal and American Regionalism, explores one of Arizona’s most historicallysignificant artists from a fresh point of view. Though the works on view may have changed, temporarily calling a different gallery home, this new exploration of Philip C. Curtis reminds us that his legacy is deeply inextricable from the very fabric of our Museum. The exhibition highlights Curtis' work not only as a painter, but also as a museum administrator and arts advocate from 1937-1945. Curtis, who came to Phoenix in 1937 to run the Phoenix Federal Art Center, emerged during a brand-new era for artists in the United States. After the stock market crash in 1929 and the resulting



Great Depression, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt implemented sweeping reforms, including the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and other relief programs. During this period, the federal government became a major patron of the arts for a relatively modest investment. As a result, a period of artistic abundance ensued. Art as a federally-funded initiative exploded in every state, with a rich regional variation. Painters and muralists received recognition with laborers as equal participants in the WPA. The experiences of Curtis illustrate the ways in which, through these programs, the influence of artists and art advocates can have a profound effect on the future of a community and its economic growth. In Phoenix, the civic traditions established

during this time became the catalyst for the founding of Phoenix Art Museum in 1959. This exhibition features works by Curtis before, during, and after his time in Phoenix, as well as works by other artists supported by federal programs including two of the Center’s teachers, Lew Davis and Kathleen Wilson. The broad scope of the exhibition touches on a web of themes, all interconnected through the art and personal history of Curtis from the mid-1930s until the end of World War II. Featured works touch on themes from Arizona geography and heavy industry to women artists, Native Americans, and even Arizona’s Japanese internment camps instituted at the beginning of World War II. Philip C. Curtis: The New Deal and American Regionalism is organized by Phoenix Art Museum. It is made possible through the generosity of donors to the Museum's annual fund.

he work of contemporary artist Sheila Pepe may be viewed through a number of different perspectives, each with its own case to be made. Her installations, expansive crocheted structures that overwhelm even the furthest corners of the galleries they seek to infiltrate, engage viewers unabashedly in a dialogue about feminism, gay rights, and queer theory. The materials with which Pepe produces her signature form of crochet, such as shoelaces, rubber bands, or other industrial leftovers, speak to a postmodern aesthetic and themes of economic class. In the words of the artist herself, "There are different stories I could tell you about my work. I choose to tell the ones most effective in the opportunity provided."

forms of art-making. Because Pepe’s works are often site-dependent and site-responsive, they pose a critical challenge to traditional boundaries of museum display, an essential feature of her sculptural practice.


For more than twenty years, Pepe has constructed these large-scale, ephemeral sculptures made from domestic and industrial fibrous materials, inviting viewers to contemplate a range of stories told in a language of loosely crafted abstraction. As the first mid-career survey of her work, Sheila Pepe: Hot Mess Formalism reflects on Pepe's remarkable body of work to date, with a focus on the artist's engagement with feminist and craft traditions that counter our notions of recognized or accepted

Beginning on October 14, Museum visitors will experience Pepe's immersive structures, objects, and works on paper. From a remake of her Women Are Bricks installation to an enigmatic series of objects with names like (summer thing) and different thing, Pepe's work proves innovative and inviting in its challenge to conventions and receptivity to multiple interpretations. Sheila Pepe: Hot Mess Formalism is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and curated by Gilbert Vicario, the Selig Family Chief Curator. It is made possible through the generosity of donors to the Museum's annual fund. The exhibition will travel to the Everson Museum of Art in Spring 2018. It is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalog with contributions by Julia Bryan-Wilson, Elizabeth Dunbar, Lia Gangitano and Gilbert Vicario. The publication is designed by Miko McGinty, Inc. and will be distributed by DelMonico Books.



A Tribute to James Galanos

Tribute to James Galanos is Phoenix Art Museum's homage to the late American designer (1924-2016). A Los Angeles-based designer, Galanos was one of few to have had a successful career as both a fashion designer and Hollywood costumer. Perhaps best known as First Lady Nancy Reagan's preferred designer, Galanos produced couture-quality ready-towear garments for a celebrity clientele over the course of five decades. Galanos was born in Philadelphia in 1924. A first-generation American born to Greek parents, he and his three sisters were raised working in their parents’ South New Jersey restaurant, where he was first inspired by the elegantly-dressed female customers. His early career was characterized by its variety: Galanos spent time working in New York as an assistant to Hattie Carnegie, sketching for costume designer Jean Louis at Columbia Pictures in Hollywood, and apprenticing with couturier Robert Piguet in Paris. Galanos established his own label in Los Angeles in 1951, then isolated from the fashion capitals of New York and Paris. Until his retirement in 1998, Galanos dressed some of the most famous women in the world, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Ross, and Grace Kelly. His work is renowned for its superior-quality materials and fabrics, and he was the recipient of numerous awards. He was the first to be honored with a bronze plaque in 2000 on New York's Fashion Walk of Fame. Galanos was a supporter of Phoenix Art Museum, and personally donated a group of his designs to the collection in 1990. The exhibition will highlight works worn by Nancy Reagan, Sybil Harrington, Kitty Carlisle Hart, Ann Bonfoey Taylor and Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, and others made for contemporary collectors including Tatiana Sorokko and Susanne Byram. The installation will include 40 ensembles that span the five decades of his career as well as never-before-seen photographs from his personal archives. A Tribute to James Galanos is organized by Phoenix Art Museum. It is made possible through the generosity of donors to the Museum's annual fund.

Infinite Light: A Photographic Meditation on Tibet

September 23, 2017 – February 18, 2018 Asian Gallery

nfinite Light can only be described as a visual poem in the form of a long, single sentence. Narrating the sequence of photographs is a rich, varied intonation of color that, as it flows, unfurls in the colors of the Tibetan prayer flags. Emanating from views of monks, holy spaces, nature, and art, the deep blues and purples of twilight skies slowly swell and burst into saturated, pulsating reds before they melt into soft, leafy greens and rich golden-yellows. The colors ebb and flow in the rarefied mountain air, and in their totality come to compose a unified poetic expression, a visual love letter to Tibet.

tones of red and orange while capturing subtler earth tones and rendering the truest photographic black. In the artist's words, the film's potential for visual contrast was integral to the project. “It is this contradiction and duality that I continually search for and respond to visually, as I believe that they are the seen metaphors for all that exists.”

Experienced as a whole, the series embodies artist Marissa Roth's original vision for the exhibition – a continuous linear sentence evoked in photographs, brought to life with pigmented ink on watercolor paper. Roth, a photojournalist, traveled to the country in 2007 and 2010 to produce an ethnographic study that focused on Tibetan Buddhist practice and devotion. The resulting photographs and book reflect the inner and outer journeys of the places Roth traversed, revealing a creative vision that speaks to the experience of Tibet in a deeply affectionate, almost reverential voice.

While sequencing the photographs, Roth underwent an unintentionally meditative practice of her own. In order to meticulously adjust the images' order, she hung prints on several tall boards, around which she walked continuously, mirroring the Buddhist practice of a walking meditation, in which the experience of movement provides a path to mindfulness and awareness. The artist translated this experience to the exhibition itself. The closely-spaced photographs are arranged clockwise, referencing the directional movement of Tibetan monasteries and shrines. Visitors are encouraged to contemplate the images at their own meditative pace.


During her travels, Roth used Kodachrome film. Kodachrome, which is no longer produced, was considered the ‘black and white’ of color film for its dramatic highlights and deep shadows. The film allowed Roth to punctuate lush

Almoço: a

f a m i l y

a f f a i r


stuffed with a rich mixture of shredded chicken and creamy cheese.

To most Brazilians, the idea of taking only a half-hour lunch is a strange, foreign practice. Brazilian culture generally regards o almoço, the midday meal, as a sacred event. More than a chance to fuel up nutritionally, lunchtime represents an opportunity to replenish one's spirits, and to relish joyful moments with family and friends.

For the main course, Brazilian entrées are made to share among friends. Staple selections include grilled chicken or beef skewers and hearty stews. For the more adventurous looking to try a uniquely Brazilian flavor, a dish of arroz com pequi, featuring chicken, rice, and pequi, a fruit popular in the centralwest regions of the country, is another excellent option to pass along the table.

n Brazil, there is a joke that if a lunch in the U.S. lasts longer than 30 minutes, it must be a business lunch.

MORE THAN A CHANCE TO FUEL UP NUTRITIONALLY, LUNCHTIME IN BRAZIL REPRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO REPLENISH ONE'S SPIRITS, AND TO RELISH JOYFUL MOMENTS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Try some Brazilian-inspired menu ideas from Palette's Executive Chef, Becky McIntyre, at your next lunch gathering. Savor traditional Brazilian flavors as well as the slow-cooked joy of dining in good company with these delicious dishes: An appetizer for the table is the perfect way to ease into a long, laid-back meal. Pastéis, or Brazilian empanadas, are small dumplings generously stuffed with hearts of palm, sautéed onions, and black olives. Coxinha, or Brazilian croquettes, are deep-fried morsels



For a deliciously-sweet ending to the full-bodied flavors of o almoço, the dessert of choice includes a passion fruit mousse and a strong cup of coffee to sip over lingering conversation. In Brazil, lunchtime needn't come to an abrupt halt when the food runs out; there's no rush when it comes to loved ones. To see what items will be featured on Palette's Past/Future/Presentinspired menu, visit us at phxart. org/palette.

This summer, beat the heat with these cool accessories that will spice up any fashion ensemble. Whether a gift for someone special, or just a chance to treat yourself, these unique pieces offer a new take on traditional summer jewelry. 1

Why We Give

Dr. Parvinder Jit Singh Khanuja and Parveen Kaur Khanuja


started collecting about ten years ago. My family has a shared interest in history, and we began our collection together. Over the years, it continued to grow, and we asked ourselves, what will we do with all this art?

Our [Sikh Art Gallery] is designed to stimulate the mind and advance cultural awareness. It is about the love of seeing schoolchildren experience art for the first time. To be in the presence of art is good for the soul. Giving to the Museum makes me feel like a guardian for the community. As a donor, I have received far more than I have given. This is one of the highlights of my life, and the start of a great relationship with Phoenix Art Museum.
