Quest for the New: Modernism of the Southwest

January 26 @ 5:00 pm - March 16 @ 5:00 pm

LewAllen Modern is pleased to present a specially curated survey of works created by pioneering voices within the Southwest Modernist movement, with particular focus on those working in New Mexico. Quest for the New: Modernism in the Southwest opens on Friday, January 26 and will remain on view through Saturday, March 17.

At the turn of the 20th century, as the world convulsed with eager anticipation of cultural revolution, Modernist artists transformed the world of art by seeking a radical break with the conventions of the past in the pursuit of new forms of artistic expression. As the poet Ezra Pound later described it, the goal everywhere was to “make it new.”
