The Bass announced the acquisition of works by Lawrence Weiner

The Bass  announced the acquisition of major contemporary works by living artists Sanford Biggers, Mark Handforth, Karen Rifas, Mika Rottenberg, Pascale Marthine Tayou and Lawrence Weiner to the museum’s permanent collection. These acquisitions are made possible by the John and Johanna Bass Acquisition Fund, launched in 2016 to expand the museum’s international contemporary art collection. Spearheaded by Executive Director and Chief Curator Silvia Karman Cubiñá and Board President George Lindemann, the program aims to forge a strong connection between the collection and the museum’s changing exhibition program, which features established and mid-career international contemporary artists.
