Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture

This is the first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of modern American portraiture. “Hide/Seek” considers such themes as the role of sexual difference in depicting modern America; how artists explored the fluidity of sexuality and gender; how major themes in modern art—especially abstraction—were influenced by social marginalization; and how art reflected society’s evolving and changing attitudes toward sexuality, desire, and romantic attachment.

Each artist was asked to lay aside his or her standard tool kit and craft a work of art with one tool alone. The challenge presented to the artists sounds simple: create a work of art with one tool. The material and tool were left open-ended with the purpose of encouraging creativity within the one-tool constraint.

Tang Museum: "Opener 21: Suzanne Bocanegra - I Write the Songs"

This exhibition focuses on five major recent works that show the range of the artist’s work, from sculpture and drawing to sound and video, and includes the first showing of a new work combining live dance with recorded sound.
