Some of today’s global influencers and prominent names from the 20th-century art canon are featured in The World Stage exhibition at the Nevada Museum of Art. The 90 contemporary artworks by 35 renowned artists comprise a variety of media, from painting to installation to mixed media, with a special focus on prints made in a wide range of techniques. Though unified by the country in which they live, these artists possess widely diverse backgrounds, worldviews, and approaches to artmaking.
Drawn from the collection of renowned art collector and philanthropist Jordan D. Schnitzer, The World Stage includes works by some of the most major American artists from the past 50 years, including Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Wendy Red Star, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley. The exhibition runs through Feb. 2021.
