Nashville, TN Curator’s Tour: Chaos and Awe
presented by Mark Scala, chief curator

During the past four years, Mark Scala, chief curator of the Frist Art Museum since 2006, devoted countless hours to choosing and installing the artworks featured in Chaos and Awe, his international survey of contemporary painting. Join him in Ingram Gallery for an in-depth look at how his selections convey the destabilizing effects of phenomena such as globalism, mass migration, the resurgence of radical political agendas, and the rapidly expanding impact of communications and information technology through art. These powerful forces are dramatically altering social relations in unpredictable ways, provoking emotions from anxiety to excitement about life in the present and future. Meet at the exhibition entrance.
