The McMaster Museum of Art presents
RISING TO THE OCCASION: The Long 18th Century
Fall 2011
PUBLIC RECEPTION: Thursday September 15, 6-8 pm
generously sponsored by The Canadian Foundation for Chinese Heritage Preservation

Explore 18th century art and its ongoing influence in five concurrent exhibitions at the McMaster Museum of Art this autumn. The exhibitions will present both historical and contemporary art, drawn from McMaster's art collection and from institutions across Canada and from the United States.

Among the paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture on view, will be major works by 18th century artists Jean-Antoine Houdon, Thomas Gainsborough, Angelica Kauffmann, George Romney, John Verelst and Jean-Joseph Taillasson, as well as historically significant, artist impressions of the Pacific from the second and third voyages of Captain Cook. The exhibitions will also interweave contemporary art inspired and/or influenced by the 18th century, including works by senior Canadian artists Don Andrus, Rebecca Belmore, Angela Grauerholz, Jiri Ladocha, John Massey, Tony Scherman, and Jinny Yu.

Rising to the Occasion: The Long 18th Century exhibitions are presented as a complement to the 18th Century Conference (John Douglas Taylor Conference) at McMaster University, October 27-29, 2011.
