Anyone who has ever struggled with understanding or appreciating art may find the perfect way in here. This exhibition, drawn from the Walker’s collections, is organized by galleries into five sections: self (portraits), inside (the interior domain), outside (landscape), everyday (still life), and everything (abstraction). The words may be quotidian, but the artwork isn’t. And yet, whether a piece is by a modern master or young innovator, the paintings, sculpture, drawings, photos, and video work presented here demonstrate how artists continue to reinvent genres and look for unconventional approaches to investigating the ordinary. Visit for new hours, timed ticketing procedures, and any additional COVID-19 precautions in place.
