Another Look at the Permanent Collection

September 9, 2015 – ongoing

The museum presents a refresh of the inaugural Anderson Collection installation by showcasing a broader spectrum of the Anderson family’s gift to Stanford University. The installation introduces museum visitors to new works by artists they’ve come to know in the museum’s galleries and provide visitors with opportunities to experience the collection in new ways. Gallery texts found through the installation were developed by PhD students in Art History at Stanford University.

Constructive Interference: Tauba Auerbach and Mark Fox

Wisch Family Gallery

September 9, 2015 – March 21, 2016

In appreciation of the Anderson family’s commitment to mid-career contemporary artists and in celebration of the fall 2015 opening of the McMurtry Building for the Department of Art & Art History, the Anderson Collection presents a focused exhibition in the Wisch Family Gallery of works by Tauba Auerbach and Mark Fox. Both graduates of Stanford University, these artists explore ideas of process, material manipulation and chance. Auerbach received her BA in Visual Studies in 2003, and Fox received his MFA in 1988. The exhibition is comprised of drawings, prints, paintings and sculpture. These works, on loan from the Anderson family, will reflect a variety of working methods employed by Auerbach and Fox.
