Additional Information

Description

Nasher Mixtape offers a compilation of “tracks,” micro-exhibitions focused on the Nasher’s permanent collection installed throughout the museum.

Nasher Mixtape takes its title from a practice, born in the 1980s, of selecting a sequence of songs from different sources and recording them on a single audio cassette. Writer Nick Hornby compared making a mixtape to writing a letter: “[There’s] a lot of erasing and rethinking and starting again.” A labor of love and a versatile creative activity, the mixtape has survived into the digital era in many different forms.

Alongside favorites from the collection—Joan Miró, David Smith, Martin Puryear, and Nancy Grossman, among others—are a host of recent acquisitions as well as historical works making their debut here: nearly one third of the works on view inside the museum have never been shown at the Nasher, and others have not been exhibited for many years.

The newest additions to the collection—by the likes of Judy Chicago, Melvin Edwards, Maren Hassinger, and Nicole Eisenman—take important strides in the ongoing work of diversifying the collection through the inclusion of more women and artists of color, as well as celebrating the endlessly inventive approaches artists take to sculpture.
