The Double: Identity and Difference in Art Since 1900 is the first major exhibition to consider how and why modern and contemporary artists have employed doubled formats to explore perceptual, conceptual, and psychological themes. From Albers, Matisse, Duchamp, and Gorky to Rauschenberg, Johns, Warhol, Truitt, and Hesse, this multimedia presentation features works by many of today's leading artists, including Kerry James Marshall, Glenn Ligon, Roni Horn, and Yinka Shonibare. Through art, The Double explores enduring questions of identity and difference, especially self-identity as defined by our own unconscious, by society, and by race, gender, and sexuality.

Anni Albers: Work with Materials traces the artist's remarkable career, featuring more than 100 works including drawings, prints, textile samples, commercial fabrics, and rugs. Focusing primarily on the productive and varied second half of her long career, the exhibition illuminates Albers's ability to move easily between her work as an artist and as a designer of functional materials.

Josef Albers. Huldigung an das Quadrat (Josef Albers: Homage to the Square) is a major exhibition of ninety works dedicated to the extraordinary cycle of Homage paintings that Josef Albers created from 1950 until his death in 1976. Early works from the 1940s provide a context for Albers's first Homage, painted in the summer of 1950, while the Homages of the 1950s and 1960s show Albers's evolving understanding of color. The exhibition is the inaugural show in the museum's new wing and features works from the museum's collection as well as loans from international museums.
