Uncommon Territory
Contemporary Art in Alabama

November 18 through January 21, 2018

On view in the Temporary Exhibition Galleries


To mark the bicentennial of Alabama’s creation as a territory, this exhibition includes both established makers along with younger, emerging artists to examine the current vitality of artistic creativity found throughout the state. Focusing on new and innovative works produced within the last few years, this survey demonstrates not only a commitment to community and place, but also a dedication to highlighting new viewpoints and practices. Showcasing a mixture of art in various media and two- and three-dimensional forms, the exhibition positions current contemporary artistic practices by artists in Alabama within a broader global context of art making.

Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
