Multiplicity: Collage in Contemporary America is the first landmark museum exhibition that explores how an intergenerational array of contemporary artists leverages the technique of collage to reflect the breadth and complexity of Black identity.
In the Upper-Level Galleries, the family-friendly Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature traces the creative and ecological achievements of the beloved English author and illustrator.

In the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery, the Frist presents Nigerian Belgian artist Otobong Nkanga’s tapestries, drawings, videos, and sculptures that feature narratives of wounding and healing, making metaphorical links between the landscape and the traumatized human body. Ron Jude’s large-scale black-and-white photographs depict natural phenomena in Oregon, California, Hawaii, and Iceland. Raqib Shaw’s alluring paintings fuse influences from Asian and Western traditions to create sumptuously detailed visions of magical environments.
