Three curators—Christopher Harrison, Maggie Thompson, and the M’s Diversity in the Arts Curatorial Fellow, Johnnay Leenay—consider the questions: What is American art? Who are “we the people”? Each curator’s unique perspective is reflected through artworks in a variety of media and cultural points of view.

Made Masculine

University of New Hampshire
Museum of Art
Paul Creative Arts Center
30 Academic Way
Durham, NH 03824

The thirteen contemporary artists in this exhibition accept the framework that masculinity is made, fashioned, and modified generation to generation. Selected works of art explore the artifice of masculinity through themes such as strength, desire, and intimacy while posing the question: What does it mean to be made masculine or to make one’s own masculinity?

Guest curator, Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Interim Curator, Fitchburg Art Museum.

August 30 - October 15
