Schulhof Collection, the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions.

BE CLEAR! Effective and incisive communication.
How much do we know about expressing ourselves effectively so that what we communicate fully reaches our interlocutor? How capable are we at decoding the messages that fill our daily lives? How is information that passes from one generation to another reinterpreted? In a metaphoric generational passage of experiences and languges BeClear! will see the transmission of works produced by adults to youths, who will intervene on the inherited materials and hand them over to children, so they may in turn experiment with and interpret them.
