Art for Art's Sake: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation

Reception January 30, 6:30 – 8:30pm
Exhibition Dates: January 30- April 26, 2014

UNLV BARRICK MUSEUM

Art for Art's Sake was the rallying cry of the 19th-century Aesthetic Movement, which believed that art should be enjoyed for its pure visual qualities. This exhibition reexamines this concept in a group of contemporary artists whose art focuses on sumptuous beauty and pure visual effects. Works by Mark Chariker, Iva Gueorguieva, David Ryan, Tim Bavington, Brian Porray, and Ali Smith allow us to revive Whistler's ideal that art should "appeal solely to the artistic sense of the eye."

This exhibition is curated by Billie Milam Weisman, director of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.

Funding has been provided by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
