The inaugural exhibition for the BMA’s new Center for People & Art brings together more than 30 works from across the BMA’s collection to explore the universal theme of home.

New Arrivals: Joachim Koester

From October 28, 2015 — March 6, 2016

This 3-minute 16 mm film was inspired by a hot air balloon expedition led by researcher Salomon August Andrée, who left Norway to journey across the North Pole in 1897. Thirty-three years later, the explorers’ remains were found with a box of negatives that told the story of a crash and an ill-fated three-month trek across the ice.

New Arrivals: Matisse Prints & Drawings

From December 9, 2015 — July 3, 2016

Approximately 20 prints and drawings demonstrate the continuing legacy of the BMA’s relationship with the Matisse family. Etta and Claribel Cone’s dedication to collecting the art of Henri Matisse established at the BMA one of the most comprehensive collections of the artist’s work.
