Multiplex: Directions in Art, 1970 to Now

Taking its name from the type of American movie theater that houses a large number of screens in order to provide a wide variety of movies, the web site for Multiplex, an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), teaches an art history lesson in an entertaining fashion. Introductory comments from Deborah Wye, curator of the exhibition, point out that it was around 1970 that our current pluralistic view of art came into being, "a complicated artistic terrain with a range of widely divergent approaches." Close to 60 works can be viewed at the site, organized into three sections. "Abstractions" includes works such as Robert Mangold's Distorted Circle within a Polygon I, 1972. "Mutability" where one can view Articulated Lair, 1986, by Louise Bourgeois, and "Provocation" which includes the video Gordon's Makes us Drunk by Gilbert & George.
