Rethinking Histories: Works from Mia’s Collection
August 24, 2019 - January 19, 2020
This exhibition is a survey of Mia’s contemporary art collection that also explores how art museums shape historical narratives and why artists create works about history. The exhibition, which includes artists’ quotes and video interviews, urges the viewer to consider this line of investigation as they view other collections at the museum.
