LUMA at 10: Greatest Hits
August 22–October 11, 2015
In celebration of LUMA’s 10th anniversary, the museum will host an exhibition of its greatest hits from past exhibitions and 10 years of acquisitions. LUMA will show Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds (2008), an exhibition consisting of large helium-filled, pillow-like forms made from silver plastic film. First shown in 1966 at the Castelli Gallery in New York, the clouds will float through 1,600 square feet of gallery space at LUMA.
LUMA will reprise The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama (2006) with pieces that have subsequently entered the museum’s collection. Among them will be Michele Oka Doner’s Harp and Lyre, Era and Donald Farnsworth’s Dharmakaya, Gabriela Morawetz’s Regarde, Andra Samelson’s Bamiyan: A Continuum, Kisho Mukaiyama’s Sanmon’s WCC - yupotanjyu + nupotanje, and Katarina Wong’s Terminus.
LUMA will also exhibit its developing collection of Chicago artists, among them William Conger, Vadim Katznelson, and Vera Klement
A cocktail party commemorating the anniversary will be held on Friday, October 9, 2015, from 6:00–11:00 p.m. The evening will be divided into two celebrations: first a cocktail party in the galleries and seated dinner at which there will be live entertainment and a silent auction; then, the after party, which will feature a DJ and dancing amongst Warhol’s Silver Clouds. Ticket information to come!
