This exhibition is a new ReMix that brings together 23 works from two major collectors whose strong personal identities characterize their maverick approach to collecting art. Over the past 40 years, Myron Kunin has built one of the most important collections of early 20th-century American art in this country; since the late 1960s, Gordon Locksley has been collecting contemporary art with a similar passion and verve. Pairings from these two remarkable collections provide a unique view of the evolution of art over the past century as well as of its enduring themes.
