The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) has added new works of art to the contemporary exhibition, Global Conversations: Art in Dialogue. The Museum has also extended the closing date of the exhibition until April 26, 2020.

Located in Levis Gallery, Global Conversations: Art in Dialogue features approximately 50 objects encompassing a wide array of media—sculpture, painting, studio glass, works on paper and mixed media.

In addition to glass installation A Rainbow Like You by artist Katherine Gray and Man and World, a large-scale ceramic work by artist Viola Frey, which were installed in August, five new works of art were recently installed, Three additional contemporary works of art will be added to the exhibition in the upcoming month.

Among the new artists featured are Duke Riley, Donis Dayan Llago, Sherry Markowitz, and Aleksandra Stoyanov. In the coming weeks, the Museum will also install artwork by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Yun-Fei Ji, and John Yoga. Along with the new artists, an additional work by Hung Liu has been added to the exhibition.

“In recent years, the Toledo Museum of Art has been working to grow and broaden its holdings of global contemporary art,” said Halona Norton-Westbrook director of curatorial affairs at TMA. “Through innovative uses of media and scale, these artists contend with some of the most pressing issues of our time.”

The majority of the works of art featured in the exhibition have been added to the Museum’s collection over the last decade. Considered together, they represent a broad perspective on the concerns of artists working today in diverse regions around the world.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council with additional support from 2019 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica.
