An exhibition that showcases the work of predominantly young and emerging artists who are questioning the ways in which we process visual information. All the works on view have entered the Museum's permanent collection within the past four years. The exhibition includes photographs, paintings, prints, and sculpture by more than a dozen artists, including Michele Abeles, Tauba Auerbach, Walead Beshty, Mathew Cerletty, Leslie Hewitt, Nick Mauss, Seth Price, Lucy Raven, Matt Saunders, Meredyth Sparks, and Kaari Upson. The title, Test Pattern, refers to a graphic tool used for projectors and other devices to synchronize signals for optimum color and clarity. For this presentation, it also suggests a metaphor for how the featured artists address the manipulation of visual information and question the legibility of images.

Venue Description: Home to an impressive display of 20th century and contemporary art of the United States, with special exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, drawings, and films. Open Wed.-Sun., 11am-6pm (Fri., 1-9pm). General admission: $20; Ages 16-25: $16; Ages 65 and over: $14; Full-time students: $14; Ages 18 and under: FREE.
