time/frame continues the Blanton’s exploration of temporality in 20th–century art. The exhibition features works drawn primarily from the Museum’s significant contemporary Latin American collections, presenting important paintings, sculpture, installations, and other works side-by-side for the first time. Visitors have the opportunity to consider juxtapositions of large-scale paintings by Vernon Fisher and Liliana Porter; photo-based, mixed media works by Gonzalo Diaz, Glenn Ligon, and Eugenio Dittborn; architecturally scaled, painted constructions by Anselm Kiefer, Fabian Marcaccio, and Luis Frangella; multi-media installations by Shahzia Sikander and Bill Lundberg; and sculpture by Anne Chu, Richard Deacon, and Terry Adkins, among other thought-provoking works. Time and point of view are explored in time/frame through literal and metaphorical representations of duration, speed, simultaneity, transformation, continuity and discontinuity, and construction of cultural identity. The exhibition showcases a number of newly acquired works, as well as a select few on loan from Texas private collections, by artists as varied as Vito Acconci, Annette Lawrence, Manglano-Ovalle, David Reed, Leon Ferrari, John Valadez, Diana Thater, Ana Mendieta, and Tatsuo Miyajima.
