Five Tables of Rebirth

Curated by the BAMPFA Student Committee.

Spring evokes new life, change, and transformation. With the arrival of the new season, the literal and abstract conceptions of rebirth come to fruition in dynamic applications of color, line, and form across media. Curated by the BAMPFA Student Committee, this month’s Five Tables offers the opportunity to view Wassily Kandinsky’s abstract compositions from his series Little Worlds, Ando Hiroshige’s Japanese woodblock prints of blooming sakura flowers, Rembrandt’s etchings, and other vibrant works.
