Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as a "Don't Miss" exhibition, Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller and His Transatlantic World, features approximately eighty paintings by Realist-Impressionist painter Francisco Oller (1833–1917) and his contemporaries. Organized by the Brooklyn Museum and debuting at the Blanton, the presentation reveals Oller’s important contributions to both the Paris avant-garde and the Puerto Rican school of painting. Providing historical, geographic, and cultural context for Oller’s work, the exhibition also features paintings by nineteenth-century masters Paul Cézanne, Winslow Homer, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and others.
Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller and His Transatlantic World is organized by the Brooklyn Museum and co-curated by Richard Aste, Curator of European Art, Brooklyn Museum, and Edward J. Sullivan, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of the History of Art, New York University. Generous support for the exhibition is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Funding for this exhibition at the Blanton is provided in part by the Ralph H. and Ruth J. McCullough Foundation, the Scurlock Foundation Exhibition Endowment, the Terra Foundation for American Art on behalf of Board Member, Marilynn Thoma, and an anonymous donor.

As part of a growing initiative to increase holdings by artists from Texas or those currently based in the state, the Blanton presents a special installation of newly acquired works by San Antonio native Donald Moffett, on view August 29, 2015 - February 28, 2016. With eight works by Moffett in its collection—including the entire suite of eighteen drawings comprising the artist’s Mr. Gay in the U.S.A. series—the Blanton currently holds more works by Moffett than any other museum in the United States. In this intimate presentation, Moffett’s diverse and influential practice is showcased through a rich variety of media including painting, drawing, and projected video on canvas. In addition to his work that investigates and advances social justice, Moffett is celebrated for his innovative use of materials and non-traditional approach to the canvas. The Blanton’s installation, which includes new acquisitions and select loans, highlights the full breadth of his range, including digital chromogenic prints, drawings, video projection paintings, and lush, bold abstract oil paintings.
The Blanton presents Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm, an exhibition of more than 30 gouache and pastel drawings by artist Natalie Frank, a New York-based Austin native. On view July 11 - November 15 and organized by The Drawing Center in New York, this presentation explores the nineteenth-century fairy tales of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, including well-known stories such as Cinderella and Snow White, and more obscure tales such as The Lettuce Donkey and The Ungrateful Son. Written between 1812 and 1857, and subsequently translated into more than 160 languages, the Grimm’s fairy tales are known and loved by children the world over. What is less known is that these stories were originally intended for adults, with later editions expunged of sexuality and violence. For this body of work, Frank uses the original, often graphic versions of the narratives as a point of departure, examining the vast emotional, physical, and intellectual transformation of the stories’ female characters. Frank renders key scenes from each fairy tale, investigating the ways in which they address gender, sexuality, and complex familial dynamics.
Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm is organized by the Drawing Center, New York, and made possible by the support of The Evelyn Toll Family Foundation, Merrill Mahan, Stephanie Ingrassia, Sarah , Kim Manocherian, Irwin and MaryAnn Gold, and Liz Parks. Special thanks to Rhona Hoffman Gallery and ACME.
Funding for this exhibition at the Blanton is provided by Beverly Dale, Eric Herschmann and family, Jenny and Trey Laird, and Kathleen Irvin Loughlin and Christopher Loughlin.

This iteration of the Blanton's award-winning SoundSpace music series pays tribute to composer Pauline Oliveros, her concept of Deep Listening, and her memorable performances in cathedrals and massive underground cisterns. Saxophonist Joe McPhee, Austin Hall of Fame inductee Heloise Gold, and other Oliveros collaborators will present works that embellish acoustic traits of the Blanton. The afternoon will culminate in a massive site-specific work that fills every gallery in the museum with sound—audience participation is encouraged.
SoundSpace is generously underwritten by Michael Chesser.
