Rotunda Project: Thomas Jackson

Pennsylvania-based artist Thomas Jackson (b. 1971; Philadelphia) harnesses the wind and lightweight nylon tulle
in pastel shades to create ethereal works of art that blur the boundaries between landscape photography, sculpture, and kinetic art. His ever-changing and delicately mesmerizing work appears to morph from a solid to a
liquid, and from fire to billowing smoke. This site-specific commission for the MBMA’s Rotunda marks the first time
that Jackson’s work has been shown in Tennessee.

Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?

The American art theorist Linda Nochlin (1931-2017) posed this question as the title of a pioneering article in 1971. This essay was considered one of the first major works of Feminist art history, it has become a set text for those who study art internationally, and it is influential in many other fields.
