Exhibitions

The Block offers a variety of stimulating exhibitions that explore historical and contemporary themes in art and culture. Drawing from its collections and works from other institutions and private collectors, the Museum curates its own exhibitions—often in collaboration with Northwestern University faculty—and hosts traveling exhibitions from peer institutions.

Compression: Recent Gifts to the Block from Bill and Sheila Lambert

Katz Gallery | 5/9/2015-8/9/2015
Drawn from recent gifts to the Block Museum of Art from Bill and Sheila Lambert, this exhibition presents works of art that compress time, space, memory, and knowledge. Including photography, printmaking, publishing, computer-generated art, collage, and drawing, these works represent each of the key areas of the Block’s extensive holdings of art on paper, a cornerstone of the collection.
