Over six decades, McVicker exhibited internationally, creating work in a wide range of modernist styles. But as New York and Los Angeles increasingly claimed the avant-garde in the 1950s and 1960s, McVicker — and many of his colleagues — all but disappeared from history. Centering Modernism fills this gap in reintroducing McVicker's contributions to international modernism. Curated by Louise Siddons, OSU Associate Professor of Art History. This exhibition is on view at the OSU Museum of Art from Sept. 25, 2018 - Jan. 19, 2019.
