Collection Gallery

With strengths in American and European surrealism, abstract painting, mid-century kinetic and Pop art, and art addressing powerful themes of history, land use, and identity, Art Since 1948 is a continuing collection installation that surveys the collection and encourages formal and conceptual connections across six decades.

The gallery is installed thematically and chronologically, beginning with works of art collected in the late 1940s from the first years of what became the university’s historic Festival of Contemporary Arts, and continues to the present. 

The gallery, designed by Julia Di Castri, a University of Illinois at Chicago School of Architecture graduate, was first installed in 2019. It was updated and reinstalled in Fall 2020, with new artwork utilized to highlight the gallery's main themes.
