Tampa Museum announces fall exhibits

TAMPA The Tampa Museum of Art announced its new fall schedule that includes a range of works from three traveling exhibits.

On Oct. 5, the museum will welcome “Fragile Waters,” “Arp, Calder, and Miro: Modern Masters from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery,” and “Sea of Tranquility” to its galleries.

“The artists represented in our fall exhibitions strove to challenge the viewer and provoke thought and discussion,” the museum’s executive director, Todd Smith, said in a news release. “We delight in presenting a new exhibition season that readily communicates with out diversified audiences and seeks to inspire a new perception of the world around us.”

The “Fragile Waters” collection features more than 115 black-and-white photographs by iconic photographers and environmentalists: Ansel Adams, Ernest H. Brooks II, and Dorothy Kerper Monnelly. The photographs capture the beauty and vitality of water.

“Arp, Calder, and Miro: Modern Masters, from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery,” is an array of 52 works across varied media that investigates the relationship between three masters of 20th century art: Jean (Hans) Arp (1886-1966), Joan Miro (1893-1983) and Alexander Calder (1898-1976).

Also coming to the Tampa Museum of Art, is “Sea of Tranquility,” a film by Brussels-based visual artist Hans Op de Beeck, where viewers will see a combination of live video recordings of actors and digitally-generated 3D environments that take viewers on a night-time journey aboard a mysterious, mythical cruise liner known as the Sea of Tranquility.

The exhibits open Oct. 5 and run through Jan. 19, 2014. The Tampa Museum of Art is at 120 Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa.
