Trip: MFA to see the exhibit: Philip Guston Now
June 24 @ 10:00 am
The bus departs at 10:00 am for a trip to the MFA to see Philip Guston Now. This major exhibition—organized by the MFA; the National Gallery of Art, Washington; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Tate Modern, London—foregrounds the artist’s lifelong commitment to raising difficult, even unanswerable questions. The selection of 73 paintings and 27 drawings from public and private collections features well-known works as well as others that have rarely been seen. Highlights include paintings from the 1930s that have never been on public view; a reunion of paintings from Guston’s groundbreaking Marlborough Gallery show in 1970; a striking array of small panel paintings made from 1968 to 1972; and a powerful selection of large, often apocalyptic paintings of the later 1970s that form the artist’s last major statement. Approximate return: 3:00 pm. Fee: $47 for transportation and admission. Sign up at the Front Desk under “Trips.” Please indicate if you have membership to the museum. Museum members will be responsible for arranging for their own tickets.
