Room 2 Installation

As part of the Pavilions’ inaugural installation, Room 2 features 65 works by 53 artists dating from 1943 to 1989. Organized both geographically and chronologically, the installation highlights major moments in the history of post-war art, including avant-garde movements that flourished in 1950s New York, 1960s Japan, 1970s Brazil, and 1980s Germany. Juxtaposing iconic artists with lesser-known contemporaries, this installation showcases the depth and breadth of the Glenstone collection.
