A Very Anxious Feeling: Voices of Unrest in the American Experience; 20 Years of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection

Friday, October 02, 2020 - Sunday, February 07, 2021

Organized by the Taubman Museum of Art featuring works from the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, A Very Anxious Feeling: Voices of Unrest in the American Experience shines light on the widespread feelings of anxiety in contemporary art. Referencing both collective and personal anxieties, the works in this exhibition highlight intersectional voices sharing their dissent, joy, and transcendence. The exhibition amplifies the voices and experiences of Latinx and Latin American artists living and working in the United States, with all works acquired by Beth Rudin DeWoody over the past twenty years.

The show will include over 70 works by 59 artists including Farley Aguilar, Carlos Almaraz, Candida Alvarez, José Alvarez, Firelei Báez, Margarita Cabrera, Gisela Colón, Sebastian Errazuriz, Monica Kim Garza, Ramiro Gomez, Patrick Martinez, Ana Mendieta, Zilia Sanchez, Eduardo Sarabia, Cecilia Vicuña and William Villalongo, among others.

A Very Anxious Feeling: Voices of Unrest in the American Experience; 20 Years of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection is curated by Amethyst Rey Beaver, Assistant Curator, 21c Museum Hotels and Eva Thornton, Assistant Curator, Taubman Museum of Art in collaboration with Laura Dvorkin and Maynard Monrow of the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection.
