ArtLab @ The Lowe- GER•MANIA!
This edition of ArtLab @ The Lowe explores key artistic movements in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Germany and Austria. Visitors to the Lowe will have the unique opportunity to examine original works of art associated with German Symbolism, Austrian Expressionism, Surrealism, the New Objectivity movement, and German Fluxus. Exemplifying these critical periods are works by Germanic masters Max Klinger (1857-1920), Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945), Erich Heckel (1883-1970), Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980), Max Ernst (1891-1976), George Grosz (1893-1959), and Joseph Beuys (1921-86); all of which are drawn from the Lowe’s permanent collection, and all of which will be on view at the Museum from April 22, 2015 to April 10, 2016.
Envisioned as a model program for future museum studies courses at the University of Miami, ArtLab @ The Lowe brings together up to 15 students within the context of an upper-level Art History seminar.
This student-curated exhibition was supervised by Dr. Nathan Timpano, Assistant Professor of Art History, and was generously underwritten by Stella M. Holmes. | more

DÜRER TO RUBENS: Northern European Art from the Bass Museum of Art

Kay Pacha: Reciprocity with the Natural World
Kay Pacha: Reciprocity with the Natural World is the first curated exhibition of ancient Andean art from the Lowe’s permanent collection of more than 1,000 ancient stone, metal, wood, ceramic, and textile objects from Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. The exhibition explores the ancient Andean concept of ayni, or reciprocity between humans and nature that fuels life on kay pacha, the surface of the earth. No other exhibition has attempted to explore how humans used art to express their gratitude, fear, and indebtedness to the harsh natural world of the Andes. Ceramic jars in the shape of a crab, royal robes made of parrot feathers or fine alpaca wool, and silver disks decorated with shellfish from the Lowe’s collections speak to how material objects conveyed the interrelatedness of life, authority, and power in these cultures. This exhibition is curated by Dr. Traci Ardren, Professor, Department of Anthropology, University of Miami. | more

David Hayes: Small Sculpture and Gouache Studies
A focused micro-exhibit, this show highlights the work of artist David Hayes, who is best remembered for his monumental cut-steel sculptures that have been featured in some 300 exhibitions both domestically and abroad. It includes six pairs of preparatory drawings and maquettes, or models, for Hayes’s full-sized colorful works, and sheds light on the sculptor’s artistic process, both intellectual and aesthetic, revealing the creative ebb and flow of Hayes’ thinking as he moved from gouache on paper to cut metal forms. | more
