Beyond the Frame

Beyond the Frame spotlights the MoCP’s permanent collection of more than 16,500 works as a rich resource for harnessing visual literacy skills. Each gallery features works focused on critical topics that appear over and over again in the history of the medium, such as Portraiture and the Human Subject, Landscape and Place, and Staged and Constructed Images. By placing works by historical and contemporary, local and international artists together according to distinct themes, we invite you to look with awareness, and when you re-enter the image-saturated world beyond the museum’s walls, to pursue thoughtful, questioning engagement with the visual depictions you encounter.

Exhibition, Sylvie Harris: The Ancestry of Home

In 2021, Sylvie Harris visited Poland to trace her family’s cultural traditions back to her great-grandmother’s homeland and to examine how they endure in the domestic space. After growing up in a family devoted to tradition and routine, Harris considers the places where these rituals are carried out and how they influence our relationship to the home. Through photographs, video, and textile installations using traditional costume fabric built as functional domestic objects, Harris addresses the importance of home in cultural traditions that endure through generations.
