The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a new installation of the permanent collection. This re-arrangement consists of treasured favorites, rarely seen works from the vault, and new acquisitions.
Glenn Kaino’s work carefully balances formal and conceptual concerns as the artist combines an often unexpected hybrid of materials in order to best communicate an idea, history, or system that might be less effective with traditional art media. For his FOCUS exhibition, Kaino has created a new body of work with the overarching themes of time and space colonization. The presentation includes pin drawings, an animatronic installation that responds to viewers, and a frozen sculptural portrait of the moon.
Docents are available to lead tours of the Modern’s building, designed by the renowned architect Tadao Ando. Group tours can accommodate 10 to 60 people and last approximately one hour; these tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance of the requested date. A public architecture tour is offered on the first Saturday of each month at 11 am.
