Global Contemporary Galleries

The Global Contemporary galleries feature thematic installations of works of art from the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, a period that has witnessed profound changes in the way that art is conceptualized and created. The works on view in this gallery invite viewers to consider how artists today are navigating the complexities of life in an increasingly global world and challenging expectations about politics, ethnic identity, gender roles, and even fine art. The collection of contemporary art continues to grow significantly, reflecting the museum’s commitment to highlighting historically underrepresented voices, including women and global majority artists.
