Dana Schutz - Cleveland Museum of Art

Dana Schutz: Eating Atom Bombs  debuts a new series of paintings by Schutz. Created mostly in the past year, the works reflect the turbulent political atmosphere experienced in the United States in the wake of the 2016 election.

On view from January 20 through April 15, 2018.
Though our society may seem more divided than ever, the exhibition suggests that this uncertainty may be what unites us. In the words of the artist, “Many of the paintings depict dystopic scenes of conflict and shame. Subjects conceal and reveal themselves, trying to hold themselves together as well as the picture.”
