Art of the Gesù: Bernini and his Age
This major international loan exhibition brings together for the first time an important group of dazzling and historically important works of art to tell the twin stories of the rise of the Society of Jesus in Rome and the building and embellishment of the Gesù, its glorious mother church, in the very center of the city. Masterpieces on view include art from the Gesù itself (never before lent to America), the most spectacular being the great Baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s marble bust of Jesuit theologian and cardinal Roberto Bellarmino, and paintings, drawings, sculpture, and prints from numerous museums and private collections in America. A tour is provided.

William Kentridge: Universal Archive
The exhibition presents new works on paper by renowned South African artist William Ken­tridge (b. 1955), inspired during the writing of his Norton Lectures, which he delivered at Harvard University in 2012. In more than 75 linocut prints based on ink sketches and printed on dictionary and encyclopedia pages, Kentridge revisits a familiar personal iconography, including coffee pots, typewriters, cats, trees, nudes, and other imagery, exploring a thematic repertoire that has appeared in art and stage productions through­out his long career. The prints, which shift from identifiable subject matter to deconstructed images of abstract marks, form juxtapositions with the underlying text that suggest skepti­cism about the creative process and knowledge construction. Guests explore this exhibition at their leisure.

The cost includes transportation, admission, tours, and lunch at Martel Restaurant.
