    Current and Upcoming Exhibitions

    My Generation: Young Chinese Artists and Selections: Robert Rauschenberg [Tours available select dates through October 11, 2015] My Generation: Young Chinese Artists is an extended look at the new generation of artists emerging in mainland China since 2000, the year that China opened wide its doors to international artists and that Chinese artists began to command attention in the global arena. The Orange County Museum of Art is fortunate to own several works by Rauschenberg and as the second installment of the series Selections—in which OCMA presents focused exhibitions culled from the museum's collection of individual artists—nine works dating from 1971 to 1985 will be on view. The selection includes collages, prints, and light boxes. Upcoming tour opportunities include the exhibitions Sandow Birk: American Qur'an, and R.Luke DuBois: Now. [Tours available select dates between January 5 - February 26, 2016] Painter Sandow Birk (b. 1962) has developed a specialty of applying the vision and scope of history painting to the examination of issues that possess contemporary relevance. Recently, Birk has spent nine years completing his most ambitious project to date, American Qur’an. In this series, he hand-transcribes and illustrates every verse of the holy book of Islam in a manner that would emphasize how the Qur’an might be more meaningful to Western audiences. R. Luke DuBois—Now is the first solo museum exhibition for an artist whose work defies categorization. Over the last decade, New York-based DuBois has produced a prodigious body of work ranging from musical composition and collaborative performance to large-scale public installations, film, and generative computer works. This survey demonstrates that DuBois operates at the intersections of the visual, the performative, and the time-based.
