Join Peter Nisbet, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, for a guided look at Arranged: Recent Acquisitions of Modern and Contemporary Paintings. Taking its title from a newly acquired work by Peter Halley, Arranged brings together a varied selection of over thirty recent acquisitions of modern and contemporary paintings by twenty-two artists. Highlights of the exhibition will include works by UNC-Chapel Hill alums Frank Faulkner, Herb Jackson (with two paintings each), and Mark Brown; a powerful group of Color Field works by Jules Olitski and other painters of his generation such as Stanley Boxer, Jack Bush, and Friedel Dzubas; and individual paintings by Greg Drasler, Jeff Elrod, Shanequa Gay, John Gibson, Peter Halley, Reggie Burrows Hodges, Val Lewton, Allan McCollum, Beverly McIver, and Philip Taaffe. The Ackland has also collected internationally, and Arranged presents works by Etel Adnan (Lebanon), Esther Mahlangu (South Africa), Pinaree Sanpitak (Thailand), Aníbal Villacis (Ecuador), and John Walker (Great Britain).
