Anila Quayyum Agha: All the Flowers Are for Me

The museum will once again present Anila Quayyum Agha: All the Flowers Are for Me. The popular exhibition, first displayed in 2017, features a work by the Pakistani and American artist Anila Quayyum Agha who creates immersive installations by manipulating light.

Light emanates from the center of a laser-cut steel cube, enveloping the gallery in intricate shadows that ripple and change as you walk through the space. Inspired by Islamic architectural forms and referencing her experience as a diaspora artist, the geometric and floral patterns cast upon the walls, floor, and ceiling create a sense of belonging through shared experience.

Future Retrieval: Close Parallel

Future Retrieval, the studio collaboration of former University of Cincinnati faculty members Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis, appropriates imagery and forms from historical objects to create new art that speaks to our twenty-first-century experience. Their practice is rooted in ceramic art, but also incorporates a diverse mix of media and techniques that combine age-old methods with new technologies.

For this exhibition, Future Retrieval will take over two museum galleries as project spaces where they will construct an unconventional response to objects “borrowed” from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s decorative art and design collection. In pairing their own work with objects from the museum’s collection, the artists will create an experience that encourages visitors to consider aspects of our historical collections and practices in a new light.

This exhibition is free with general admission. Advance online entry required. Book your entry time online at

American Painting: The Eighties Revisited

Reconstituting the landmark exhibition American Painting: The Eighties from New York University’s Grey Art Gallery exhibition in 1979, American Painting: The Eighties Revisited captures a pivotal moment in twentieth century art. It features abstract paintings by artists, including Sam Gilliam, Nancy Graves, and Elizabeth Murray, all of whom were new to the New York art scene at the time. American Painting: The Eighties toured to Houston, Texas, then to 13 cities abroad, from Paris to Tel Aviv.

Along the way, a lively argument ensued about the direction that art was headed: would the best paintings reflect back on the Abstract Expressionism of the 1950s, or would they launch from the subsequent Pop Art or Minimalist movements?

Forty of the 41 paintings in the American Painting: The Eighties exhibition have been acquired by the Cincinnati Art Museum, with gratitude to the generosity of Ronnie and John Shore.

This exhibition is free with general admission. Advance online entry required. Book your entry time online at
