The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, second floor
Sigmar Polke confronts German history through an enormously personal journey into the unknown, using meditation, travel, and experimentation to question systems of power. Ask what it means to be an artist and explore Polke’s numerous and sometimes contradictory answers through his material processes and unexpected choices.
In conjunction with the exhibition Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963–2010
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
