Past Things and Present: Jasper Johns since 1983.


Awkward and self-absorbed doesn't sound like a hot date, and many people find late Johns hard to love. But expect Walker curator Joan Rothfuss--along with art historians Richard Shift and Victor Stoichita in the catalogue--to make the best case for this opaque and reflexive work. (An exhibition of more familiar art from 1955 to 1963 will be on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art's "Jasper Johns: Numbers.") Look for never-before-exhibited work from the artist's collection as well as new paintings--they might just win you over.
