Seeing in Color and Black-and-White

Developed as a companion to Monet’s Waterloo Bridge: Vision and Process, this exhibition features artists such as Josef Albers, Victor Vasarely, and Jesús Rafael Soto, who chose abstraction over representation to reveal the mechanics of human vision and make viewers aware of how they see.

This exhibition was developed in consultation with Woon Ju Park, a former postdoctoral associate at Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester. All interpretive materials were researched and prepared by students enrolled in the Spring 2018 University of Rochester course, “The 21st Century Art Museum,” taught by Andrew Cappetta, Assistant Curator of Academic Programs at MAG.
