As artists respond to the world around them, their creations become social and cultural forces in their own right. With work by more than 75 artists from more than 20 different countries, Driving Forces features a wide-range of work that not only responds to, but helps shape contemporary culture. Work by artists who influenced the direction of twentieth-century art, such as Frank Stella and Susan Rothenberg, are joined by others who are helping to define what art means in the twenty-first century, including Nick Cave, Deana Lawson, Zanele Muholi, and Zhang Huan, among many others. With this array of inter-generational and international artists, the exhibition opens up a conversation around a range of contemporary artistic and cultural issues. CMA’s fall exhibition of contemporary art draws exclusively from the collection of Ron and Ann Pizzuti and spans between both CMA locations, Columbus Museum of Art and the Pizzuti Collection of CMA.
