Featured in VOGUE Magazine’s famed September Fashion Issue, Nick Cave’s “Soundsuits” are fabricated from radically diverse, multi-layered, found materials. Over thirty examples of these mixed media sculptures comprise this exhibition along with videos and photographs of the sculptures in action.
Norton Museum of Art creates a striking new exhibition with pieces from the Miami Beach fairs. Each December, the country’s leading contemporary art collectors, dealers, critics and fans engage in urgent, heated exchanges about what’s new, what’s good and what’s next at Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the world’s most influential art fairs. Beginning barely a week after Art Basel shuts down, the prestigious Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Fla. will propose some of its own answers to those questions in a special exhibition called Now WHAT?, on view through March 13, 2011. The Museum’s curators made selections from Art Basel Miami Beach, Pulse, Scope, NADA, Art Miami and at least 14 other fairs to identify the newest, most innovative and meaningful contemporary art of today.
The Norton Museum of Art Presents Vintage “Tinsel-town” Glamour with Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation On view December 12, 2010 through March 6, 2011 Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation, is comprised of 94 photographs by over 50 photographers, drawn from the London-based archive of the late author and collector John Kobal. Kobal (1940-1991) was among the pioneering generation of Hollywood historians and one of the first to seriously examine the photographs taken to promote stars, films, and Hollywood as a destination. The resulting collection provided the platform for Made in Hollywood which includes prints of some of the greatest, most glamorous stars of the golden age of the film industry, along with fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpses into film sets.

As the title suggests, the exhibition–drawn from the Norton’s American, European and Contemporary collections presented groupings of abstract sculpture. Over 20 sculptures are organized around such themes as “Lines,” “Assemblages” and “Vessels.”
